As the main magnetic field strength increases, the corresponding RF wavelength is shortened. This leads to pronounced wave effects in the transmit field, causing inhomogeneous excitation. Multi-channel arrays provide additional degrees of freedom to mitigate such effects and to manipulate (or to tailor) RF transmission. Roughly these can be divided in 3 types, namely local arrays, remote circumferential arrays and travelling wave arrays. Examples of these arrays are presented in this educational talk.
