In this work, we experimentally determine the resolution of split-ring metamaterials lenses with emphasis in magnetic resonance imaging applications. Two small sources are used to determine the minimal resolution of the lens, which is compared with previous theoretical predictions. Taking into account this minimal resolution, a second experiment is designed in order to study the ability of a split-ring lens to improve the localization of the field produced by two closely spaced coils. This ability could find application in parallel magnetic resonance imaging, which take advantage of the distinct coil sensitivities in order to reduce the image acquisition time. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
