U-shaped FM waveform for adiabatic Bloch-Siegert \(B_1^{+}\) mapping and spatial encoding.

  • n (int) – number of time points
  • dur (float) – duration in seconds
  • b1p (float) – nominal amplitude of constant AM waveform
  • k (float) – design parameter that affects max in-band perturbation
  • gamma (float) – gyromagnetic ratio

FM waveform (radians/s).
