1. A method for a wireless signal transmission of a measurement signal or a control signal between two functional components of a magnetic resonance (MR) system, the method comprising:
encoding, by an orbital angular momentum encoding unit of the MR system, the measurement signal, the control signal, or the measurement signal and the control signal into a radio-frequency (RFS transmit signal with a predefined orbital angular momentum rendering the RF transmit signal distinguishable from other RF signals within a same frequency range;
transmitting the RF transmit signal between transmit antenna arrangements of the two functional components of the MR system; and
decoding, by the orbital angular momentum encoding unit, the RF transmit signal.
