We developed a novel 9.4T (400MHz) human head transceiver array consisted of 8 optimized bent folded dipole antennas. Due to an asymmetrical shape of dipoles (bending) and the RF shield, the array simultaneously excites two modes including a circular polarized mode of the array itself, and the TE mode of the human head. Mode mixing can be easily controlled by changing the folded length. As a result, the new array provides superior whole-brain coverage compared to various 8-element loop and dipole arrays or even to a more complicated 16-element loop array. In addition, the maximum local SAR is substantially reduced.
