A high sensitivity resonator was constructed from CaTiO3, relative permittivity 156, Q value of 2081, for magnetic resonance experiments at 600 MHz. This design is simple to construct, avoids wavelength effects, is highly mechanically stable and is low loss. The sample is placed in a volume of strong, homogeneous B field and very low E field. High resolution images of zebrafish have been acquired using this probe.
