Optically controlled on-coil amplifiers have been presented for the practical implementation of pTx system at ultra-high field MRI. We present a new prototype that can transmit power to excite 1H and X-nuclei. We show bench and MRI data with a dual-tuned on-coil amplifier implementation for 1H and 31P excitation at 7T. We expect this technology can allow a simpler and more versatile implementation of a multinuclear multichannel hardware compared to the traditional multinuclear setup based on 50 Ω broadband voltage mode amplification.
