Laistler Group

We are working on hardware and simulations to make Magnetic Resonance faster and better.

Radio Frequency (RF) coils are our passion. We put a special focus on design, simulation, and construction of non-standard coils and like it flexible & wearable, multi-nuclear, or multi-modal.

We are running a fully equipped Radio Frequency Lab right next to the 7T (Tesla) MR scanner and across the hall from two 3T scanners.

For 3D electromagnetic simulations we operate dedicated workstations with powerful GPUs to optimize RF coils and evaluate their safety.

Our team is constantly searching for new members. Contact Elmar Laistler if you are interested!
