An efficient eigenfunction approach to calculate spin-echo signals in heterogeneous porous media
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2013
An approximate method for solving the Bloch-Torrey equation by surface integrals is developed. The method presents a fast means for calculating pulsed-gradient spin-echo nuclear magnetic resonance signals in porous systems, and it is especially efficient when the surface-to-volume ratio is low. The number of operations for retrieving echo decays scale as O(k(2)), where k is the number of surface elements. The theory is numerically validated for pulsed-gradient spin-echo sequences on two-dimensional and three-dimensional examples.
