The possibility of manipulating a magnetic field that has the same the magnitude of Earth's geomagnetic field is the focus of this topic. This manipulation will be making a stronger magnetic field, that is one hundred times or greater then the supplied magnetic field. The approach to investigate this concept was with magnetic shielding material. This material is designed to protect an area from external magnetic fields. During this experiment the material will be used to focus magnetic field into a much smaller area, effectively increasing the magnetic flux. The geometry of the material will be that of a linear truncated conical shell, where the resultant magnetic field strength at the smaller radius will be proportional to the ratio of the radii of the larger and smaller radii.
