Superconducting shielding

W.O. Hamilton

Stanford University, Department of Physics, Stanford, California (U.S.A.)

Superconducting shields offer the possibility of obtaining truly zero magnetic fields due to the phenomenon of flux quantization. They also offer excellent shielding from external time varying fields. Various techniques of superconducting shielding will be surveyed and recent results discussed.
