A single-channel planar shim coil for a permanent magnet was developed using the target field approach. The winding pattern for the shim coil was calculated for a 1.0 T permanent magnet using the magnetic field inhomogeneity measured with a 3D lattice phantom. The designed shim coil improved the magnetic field homogeneity by about 5 times, which demonstrated the usefulness of our approach.
