Experimental MEG Cap

A number of groups, including us, are exploring what an OPM-based MEG system will look like in the future. The technology is evolving rapidly so it is difficult to make a prediction but an EEG cap-like solution does look promising in the short term. In the photo below we explore a prototype MEG cap with… Read more »

A small, low-cost Magnetically Shielded Room

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and other biomagnetic recordings are generally made inside a magnetically shielded room (MSR) to suppress environmental magnetic noise. Traditional MSRs built for superconducting MEG systems are very large (for example 3.9 x 2.9 x 2.3 m) and cost around $1M. Optical MEG systems, such as QZFM based MEG, can be very compact and do not require such… Read more »

QZFM Discussion Group

We are starting a long overdue discussion/support page for QZFM (QZFM discussions). Here you will find answers to basic technical queries, and you can post questions, results, tips and any other information useful for the general community. It will take some time to create an exhaustive database but your inputs will go a long way… Read more »

QZFM Gen-2 (Update)

The second generation QZFM sensor (Gen-2) is finally ready for release. In this upgrade, we focussed on mainly two things: (i) reducing the size and weight of the sensor, and (ii) improving manufacturability to support faster production speeds. Along the way, we squeezed out a little more sensitivity and extended the sensor tolerance to background magnetic fields from… Read more »
