Redi Poni defended his MS thesis on Aug 15, 2016. His thesis title was "A Digitally Controlled Class-E Amplifier for MRI". In the thesis, Redi showed the feasibility of using a class-E amplifier as a very efficient amplifier for transmission of RF signal.  Furthermore, he showed that these amplifiers can be controlled digitally. The top panel of the figure shows phantom images obtained using two of these amplifiers working simultaneously. The bottom panel shows the MR image obtained when only one channel is used. Redi will continue his PhD studies in France.
