When multiple RF fields are applied at different frequencies, multiphoton excitation can occur when the sums or differences of integer multiples of these frequencies equal the Larmor frequency. No RF at the Larmor frequency is required. In this work, we describe the general principles of multiphoton pulsed selective excitation, providing a formalized treatment with design examples and implementations on a 3T scanner with an additional homemade z-direction (Bz) coil. With the additional Bz coil, we demonstrate additional flexibility, where the same excitation can be accomplished in several different ways with the same pulse duration.
