A1_8 Hunting for Monopoles ii. A retarding mechanism for magnetic charges

Kieran Flatt, Maria Garreffa, William Longman, Sam Turnpenney


An earlier article in this journal discussed the possibility of detecting magnetic monopoles using a wire loop: when a magnetic monopole passes through the loop, a current is induced. It was remarked in that paper that a device to retard monopoles would be useful for assisting such searches. Here, we follow up this finding by investigating the feasibility of using a wire coil to perform such a task. It is found that such a device is unlikely given current technoloy.
