A simple and easy to implement method for shim coil design is proposed as an alternative to most popular, but complicated methods. It is straightforward in obtaining the optimal stream function, which is further discretized into a coil wiring, using an analogy to magnetized material and a boundary discretization into square dipoles. Simulation results show good performance in designing spherical harmonics shim coils.
