Low cost, robust shielding solutions for maximum imaging resolution and stability in high EMI locations

Levi Mecham, PE
Vice President of Engineering
VitaTech Electromagnetics

Before embarking on new research capital projects involving highly sensitive imaging equipment and ion-beam research instruments, attend this session to get new solutions for the Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) problems that could otherwise cripple science programs. Levi Mecham calls upon recent projects that included NION, KRIOS with GIF and other EMI-challenging ion-beam research instruments to demonstrate alternative shielding strategies that deliver equal protection at lower cost. He examines site specific solutions and room design recommendations for mitigating magnetic fields emanating from ramping magnetics, DC electrified trains, moving elevators, diesel trains, vehicles, and all ferromagnetic masses in motion.
