Magnetic Shielding Materials

  1. Jul 20, 2006 #1
    Hi all,

    I was looking into magnetic shielding materials. I have the impression that nickle, copper, steel standalone are good shileding materials. However, some people claim that an alloy of these elements (eg. netics) are better shielding materials. Is this simply an empirical measurement or is there a scientific reason behind it?
