MOIN spin library - overview
The Magnetic resonance Open source INitiative (MOIN) spin library was designed and written in the Section Biomedical Imaging, Molecular Imaging North Competence Center (MOIN CC), Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology, University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), Kiel University, by Andrey N. Pravdivtsev and Jan-Bernd Hövener in 2018. Much of the quantum mechanical part and its application to SABRE hyperpolarization was described in the publication:
A. N. Pravdivtsev and J.-B. Hövener, “Simulating Nonlinear Chemical and Physical (CAP) Dynamics of Signal Amplification By Reversible Exchange (SABRE)” // Chem. Eur. J, DOI: 10.1002/chem.201806133.
The MOIN spin library was developed for computation of various aspects of magnetic resonance (MR): performance of pulse sequences, hyperpolarization experiments, acquisition and reconstruction of MR-imaging and chemical exchange analysis. The library consists of three main parts:
The library is an open source and comes with various examples and a manual. The user can use/modify/check already written functions/objects or develop his own. If there is an interest in shared development, we can move the code to GIThub.
In case of any questions, suggestions or contributions please contact:
If you use the library for publications, please provide us with the source code so that we can make it available on this website. You may want to consider citing the above mentioned article or one of those below.
Disclaimer: some parts of the library are in developing stage and not have been tested properly and may contain mistakes. We are working on that. If you find issues, please let us know so that we can fix it.
