Developing MR based field probes requires careful design, because a distorted local magnetic field within the sample droplet can lead to a significant reduction in signal fidelity. By simulating the local field variations due to the susceptibility of the field probe itself, we demonstrate a novel approach to acquiring appropriate design parameters in order to optimise the performance of new probe prototypes. We compare our numerical results with experimental data in order to verify and explore the capabilities of the simulation.
