We have developed a new permanent magnet based single sided magnetic resonance system, which is suitable for relaxometry and diffusion measurement. Our design generates an external region of homogeneous B0 field, a sweet spot, from which signal can be detected. The magnet has been optimised to have a larger penetration depth and higher B field strength than currently existing systems. We have found the system provides good homogeneity and field strength, making it useful for relaxometry. Additionally, we demonstrate it can be used for diffusion-T2 measurements, which will allow further biomedical applications.
