A1_7 Hunting for Monopoles i. A toy model for detection

Kieran Flatt, Maria Garreffa, William Longman, Sam Turnpenney


Extensive searches for a magnetic monopole - the magnetic equivalent of a single electric charge - have been ongoing since they were first predicted by Paul Dirac in 1931. Despite strong theoretical foundations, these mysterious particles have never been detected with strong confidence. In this paper, we take advantage of Faraday's law to present a method for such searches: a monopole passing through a wire loop induces a current, which we calculate.
