A novel route towards chip integrated NMR analysis is evaluated. The basic element in the design is a stripline RF 'coil' which can be defined in a single layer lithographic process and which is fully scalable to smaller dimensions. The sensitivity of such a planar structure can be superior to that of a conventional 3D helix. The basic properties, such as RF field strength, homogeneity and susceptibility broadening are discussed in detail. Secondary effects related to the thermal characteristics are discussed in simplified models. Preliminary NMR tests of basic solid and liquid samples measured at 600 MHz confirm the central findings of the design study. It is concluded that the stripline structure can be a valuable addition to the NMR toolbox; it combines high sensitivity with low susceptibility broadening and high power handling capabilities in a simple scalable design.
