Shielded Rooms

  • Sergio N. Erne’


Historically the development of biomagnetism is strongly connected with magnetically shielded rooms; Cohen (1967) started his pioneering work with such a room. In the last fifteen years, approximately eight shielded rooms have been built in various laboratories, and they incorporate different principles. These are:
  1. a)

    eddy-current shielding (used exclusively, for example, for the NBS room in Boulder, Colorado);

  2. b)

    magnetic and eddy-current shielding (for example the Berlin Magnetically Shielded Room);

  3. c)

    combined passive and active shielding.(for example, the Finnish shielded room in Otaniemi).
