A method for generating quadrature mode by single-feed surface coil for ultrahigh field MR was presented. With the proposed single-feed quadrature surface coil, high frequency quadrature coil array for parallel imaging can be readily built. To demonstrate the concept, a single-feed quadrature coil array with two elements was designed and tested. The bench test and FDTD simulation results are presented.
