Proposal for a search for magnetic monopoles at NAL

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The discovery of a magnetic monopole would be an important experimental result. It would give a reason for the phenomenon of exact electric charge quantization that is not explained yet any other way. Schwinger's dyon theory makes monopoles even more important because they would also be the quarks, i.e., the building blocks of the hadrons. Schwinger's scheme requires the electric charge of the monopoles to be a multiple of 1/3 of the electron charge while all magnetically neutral particles must have electric charges equal to an integer times the electron charge. Monopoles would be also responsible for CP violations.
