A Shield against induction of sounds from remote source of RF

  1. Dec 11, 2016 #1
    It has been demonstrated that it is possible to make humans hear sounds using waves.

    Abstract From Journal of Applied Physiology
    Is there a practical method for shielding? I mean using materials for simple attenuation, and/or altering characteristics of waves (frequency, phase and/or amplitude).

    A metal plate provides some shielding. For complete isolation, a closed metal box called a Faraday Cage.. But shielding does not change frequency. Phase is irrelevant.

    Note that I did not mention a tin foil hat above. :smile:
