Search for Monopoles Above the 15-Foot Bubble Chamber

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Magnetic monopoles having energies less than about 40 TeV will be slowed to their terminal velocity by the earth's atmosphere. They may then be gathered by the fringing magnetic field of the 15-foot bubble chamber. We propose placing detectors of Lexan and nuclear emulsion at convenient locations above and below the bubble chamber. Such a systom would be sensitive to monopole masses between 10 GeV and 100 TeV and to monopole charges between {approx}0.7 and 10 hc/2e. The experiment would require the construction of a special light roof and would run for 5 weeks during a time when the bubble ... continued below

The experiment would require the construction of a special light roof and would run for 5 weeks during a time when the bubble chamber is filled with air and not in use for other experiments. This study would lower the existing limit on in-flight detection of monopoles (at the earth's surface) by a factor of 20.
