Research & Education


Whether you want to learn shielding theory, shielding calculations, or the differences between our shielding alloys, we can help. We are all affected by, and becoming acutely aware, of the affects electromagnetic interference has on safety and compliance. Each day we receive unique inquiries from students, inventors, scientists, engineers and buying professionals - many with limited knowledge of how magnetic shielding materials can be used to avoid unwanted interference.

Magnetic Shielding Lab Kits

(In Stock)

"Hands-On" evaluation and sampling begins here. Using our Lab Kits, Meters & Probes, shielding can be prototyped with everyday common hand-tools, or bench- top and model-shop equipment. Layers of material from a Lab Kit can be added until the unwanted field is reduced (attenuated) to the desired level. Your prototype then serves as a production model. After prototyping, contact Leading Edge Metals & Alloys for a fabrication or stock material quotation.

Our Lab Kits include a variety of MuMETAL®, Co-NETIC®, and NETIC® alloy samples for testing and evaluation. Three Lab Kit options are available.

For additional help please contact one of our specialists.

Zero Gauss Chambers

Whether you are an independent research scientist, inventor or student performing research at a university, national laboratory or design firm, we are here to help. Maintaining very low magnetic fields in a cryogenic or vacuum environment is critical for laboratory evaluation and experimentation. Based on decades of field proven experience, our most popular item used in research is our MuMETAL® Zero Gauss Chambers. These scientifically engineered chambers provide a laboratory work space of extremely low magnetic field. We stock several chamber sizes, and can produce custom sizes and configurations for you. Although theoretical calculations exist, "hands-on" evaluation is necessary. This is why our specialist suggest using one of our hands-on Lab Kits to test, measure and evaluate the affects of low-frequency fields within your physical environment. We can also help with wall shielding, rooms and enclosures to create a low-field lab. Our engineers are available to perform site surveys under a consulting contract agreement, reporting our recommendations of how to mitigate EMI/EMF disturbances.
