Magnetic Field Transportation possible?

  1. Jul 8, 2013 #1
    Hey guys and girls.

    My title may not be accurate but here goes.

    I was wondering, can a magnetic field be transported?

    Lets say I have a Rare Earth Magnet. Said magnet has a magnetic field around it.
    Is there a way to move said magnetic field away from its source?

    Lets say I have this magnet but I want to transport its magnetic field 6 inches away from its physical surface. Is there a way to do this?

    I want to have two magnetic fields interacting with each other but not the magnets themselves.
    Just the fields. This is because magnetic fields slowly but surely ruin magnets when they are setup in a repulsion orientation. S to S or N to N.

    Possibly any way to use Mu Metal to help shape or push a field?

    Thanks

    Only way to change the field is to alter the source (or add in another source to interfere with the existing one), so no.
