Short summary
We have assembled a few off-the-shelf electronic chips and a popular Arduino Uno microcomputer board in an automatic system that performs so-called tuning and matching of an arbitrary NMR probe head at very low cost. This removes the tedium of doing the job by hand, the bane of many NMR analysts. It also brings accuracy and repeatability into the process, which is so necessary for high throughput analysis or when working with low-field permanent magnesystems with excessive magnetic field drift.
