superconductors and magnetic fields

Recommended Posts

Looking for a way to effectively shield magnetic fields, on particular sides of multiple magnets.

 

Would superconductor be most effective?

 

Suggestions?

What type would work best? Is there another way?

 

 

Thanks

You can buy magnetic field shielding in metal mesh form. Not sure I can explain it quickly of the top of my head. Type 'magnetic shielding' or something like that into google and have a read around.

A superconductor would be the most effective, so long as you could keep it at about -270 degrees C, and I don't know it it would work against particularly strong magnetic fields.

Mu-metal is fine up to a point. And you don't have to mess with liquid helium/nitrogen. How strong are the fields exactly?
