New generation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, so-called ultra-high field MRI scanners, require tightly special distribution of radio frequency (RF) antennas inside the scanner. Being closely located near each other, RF antennas are highly coupled with neighboring antennas which results in low efficiency and bad image quality. This dissertation shows that using passive structures or redesigning antennas can decouple these antennas. To this goal, the dissertation develops a method for decoupling tightly packed dipole antennas based on passive structures and, decoupling loop antennas by redesigning them based on coaxial cable. Moreover, the possibility of using these techniques for other applications, namely wireless power transfer, is studied. The results prove the multi-functionality of the methods.
