The long-term goal of the project is to create the magnetic shielding packaging for a micro-machined gyroscope using spin-polarized nuclei. The shield is to have an attenuation above 10 to the 6 and a small size of approximately one cubic centimeter volume while allowing signal transmission lines to communicate with outside world. This is accomplished with multiple layers of high permeability material such as nickel-iron alloy. Current work focuses on new methods of fabricating shielding devices and the exploration of additional shielding materials.
