The MMLFC was designed to meet the need of a modern palaeomagnetic research laboratory that requires measurement and demagnetisation to be carried out in a near zero field environment to avoid magnetic viscosity effects.

  The Magnetic Measurements Low-Field Cage (MMLFC) consists of 15 square 
coils, 5 in each of 3 directions , all automatically controlled by a 3 axis fluxgate 
magnetometer. The MMLFC will cancel the earth field and 50/60Hz mains 
generated magnetic fields.

   The MMLFC provides a cost effective and low magnetic field environment without creating the stuffy and enclosed environment of a mu-metal room. The MMLFC is spacious and open and there is no need for any additional ventilation systems. The coils are counterbalanced and can be opened for easy access.
