In this work, we investigate the feasibility and advantages of ultrahigh high field body transmit array design using non-resonance method. With their features of uniform current and field distributions and frequency-insensitive, the proposed technique can be used for proton and multinuclear excitations with one single coil, providing a promising method to large-sized body coil designs at ultrahigh fields.
