Testing the limits of shape optimization by large-flip-angle pulses

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Optimized waveforms for inverting pulses with areas up to 9π are reported. Both differences and similarities in rectangularity of inversion and sensitivity to inhomogeneity are found. For some applications many-π pulses may be more useful than low-flip-angle pulses. © 1992.
