1. An NMR probe including an RF coil which defines therein a sample region; a body formed from a heat conductive and electrically conductive material which defines an open cylindrical channel, the body being located within the RF coil and the channel being configured to receive therein an NMR sample tube; and a thermal control apparatus comprising a thermal control fluid circuit having a thermal control fluid inlet and a thermal control fluid outlet to control the temperature of the sample region, wherein the body defines a non-conductive axial region along an entire length of the body formed by an axial gap through a wall of the body.
