Title: Device for homogenizing a magnetic field

Abstract: The magnetic field in the working volume of an apparatus for measuring the magnetic resonance, in particular nuclear magnetic resonance, is homogenized in that shim plates are disposed at predetermined positions about the working volume and, in sum, do not generate a field in the center of the working volume. The summed effect of the shims is preferably inductively decoupled from the coil generating the magnetic field.
