Commercially available passive magnetic shields with active components that allow the generation of a tailored low-field environment are required for many applications in science, engineering, and medical imaging. Until now, accurate field nulling, or field generation, has only been possible over a small fraction of the overall volume of the shield. This is due to the interaction between the active field-generating components and the surrounding high-permeability passive shielding material…
