Abstract

In ultra-low-field magnetic resonance imaging (ULF MRI) working in the micro-tesla magnetic field range, the superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) as the signal detector is very susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI) so that the system normally works in a shielded room. However, the leakage of EMI in the shielded room may still seriously reduce the system performance. In order to improve the electromagnetic compatibility of the system, we designed a microwave absorbing composite, graphene/Cu/nylon fabric (GCN fabric). In this design, high shielding effectiveness and low-noise performance of the EMI shielding material are equally crucial due to the extremely sensitive..
