Electron Shields Can Protect against Electromagnetic Radiation

South Ural State University

The space surrounding us is literally pierced with electromagnetic radiation and magnetic fields of natural and artificial origin. Even a short electromagnetic pulse is enough to knock equipment of any level of complexity out of operation. Candidate of Sciences (Physics and Mathematics) Aleksey Trukhanov, who is senior research fellow at the SUSU Nanotechnologies Research and Education Center, is studying electrolytic films to create electromagnetic and magnetic shields capable of neutralizing the radiation.
