Dielectric resonators with Ultra-High Dielectric Constant (uHDC) materials possess intrinsic resonance modes that have been used for RF transmission and reception. The resonance modes and conditions of the uHDC discs were studied through computer simulations. We compared the B1+ field and RX-sensitivity when employing cylindrical uHDC discs at both resonant and non-resonant conditions. We showed in this work, to achieve the best focusing effect into phantom, the design with uHDC material should operate around the first TE01δ mode and lower than the second mode TE01δ with the highest permittivity.
