We present the results of a systematic measurement of the magnetic susceptibility of small material samples in a 9.4 T MRI scanner. We measured many of the most widely used materials in MR engineering and MR micro technology, including various polymers, optical and substrate glasses, resins, glues, photoresists, PCB substrates and some fluids. Based on our data, we identify particularly suitable materials with susceptibilities close to water. For polyurethane resins and elastomers, we also show the MR spectra, as they may be a good substitute for silicone elastomers and good casting resins.
