(PDF 1,654.5 kb)
 The electromagnetic shielding properties of pure magnesium, magnesium alloys and the difference with other metals were investigated by using the coaxial cable method. The results show that electromagnetic shielding property of pure magnesium is great, and those of magnesium alloys vary with the alloy elements. Among magnesium alloys, Mg-Al-Zn based alloys are the best for electromagnetic shielding. The cause of different shielding properties among different materials and the effects of thickness, electric conductivity on electromagnetic shielding property were also discussed.
