Magnetic Shield Enclosure under construction.

Magnetic Shield Enclosure under construction.   Details: The nEDM@SNS experimental apparatus must be shielded from stray magnetic fields. A multi-layer Magnetic Shield Enclosure (MSE) is being assembled for this purpose by IMEDCO, a Swiss firm specializing in magnetic shielding applications. This video shows the assembly in action.

Radio-frequency Shield Room Installed

For optimal performance the experiment’s SQUID magnetometers must reside in a hermetically sealed Faraday cage. The aluminum Cryovessel serves this function, but temperature sensors and other devices with wiring that penetrates the Cryovessel must terminate in a connected Faraday cage (the Radio-Frequency Screen Room, or RFSR) outside the Magnetic Shield …
