We explore two magnetic shielding technologies: high-μ metals and superconducting shielding. The high-μ shield is a box made of Amuneal A4K, an alloy designed for high permeability at cryogenic temperatures. The box geometry is a half cylinder to allow for simultaneous testing of shielded and unshielded readout electronics. The superconducting shielding is a NbN-coated cover installed around a superconducting filter network. We saw no attenuation of coupling to the applied external field with the A4K box, and the NbN shield amplifies this coupling in its current implementation. We found the A4K box is effective at isolating some coupling to magnetic fields inherent to the readout electronics. Further testing is needed to differentiate neighboring-SQUID effects from other intermodule coupling before evaluating the NbN shield's crosstalk isolation capability.
