    So, I know that we can stop objects from getting zapped by electricity by putting them in a Faraday cage and that we can redirect magnetic force (what would the proper word for this be by the way?) away from sensitive equipment by putting an iron box around the given object, causing the magnetic force to flow through the iron box, rather than mucking around with the object.

    My question is, is it possible to mix the two and have something which shields from electro-magnetic radiation?

    Thanks in advance,

    Digichris.

    P.S. If I was wrong about anything above (I probably am) please do let me know.

      What sort of e-m radiation? The scope is enormous, ranging from radio waves at one end and gamma rays at the other.
      E-M waves are absorbed depending on their wavelength.
      For example, UV rays can be absorbed by glass while visible light passes through.

      What type do they use in EMPs? I mean Electro-magnetic waves of the kind which muck up electronics, beyond that I don't really know, sorry for being a bit vague.
