Public Profile

ABQMR Inc, a spin-off from New Mexico Resonance, is a research and development company working in the areas of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). The firm has experience in fundamental and applied research and market-driven development, specifically applications of MRI and NMR in relatively low magnetic fields. In addition, the firm offers their consulting services to those exploring the possibility of using magnetic resonance in their experiments, processes, or products. As an outgrowth of our software development work for MRTechnology of Japan, the firm offers their Compact MRI system for sale in the US. The MRT system is a highly capable MRI console that has been optimized to work with permanent magnets. By pairing the console with the appropriate magnet, it is possible to build compact systems for specific applications at a fraction of the cost, space requirements, and maintenance needs of traditional MRI systems. The firm has designed and built experiments from the ground up, including probes, tank circuits, amplifiers, RF electronics, digital control electronics, computer interfaces, and data acquisition and analysis software. Much of this work has been in the context of unusual experiments or applications, including experiments at low temperatures, those requiring ultra-high bandwidths, imaging of solids and gases, velocity fluctuation imaging, detection of signals at very low frequency, detection of very small signals, and many others. The objects of these experiments have included probing the structure and electronic properties of quasi-crystalline metal hydrides, the mechanisms of segregation in flowing granular matter, the detection of underground fluids, microcoil NMR, unilateral NMR, and many others.
