Record-breaking magnetic shielding for high-precision experiments

The weakest magnetic field in the solar system

18-May-2015

Magnetic fields easily penetrate matter. Creating a space practically devoid of magnetic fields thus presents a great challenge. An international team of physicists has now developed a shielding that dampens low frequency magnetic fields more than a million-fold. Using this mechanism, they have ...
