3 Introduction Monopoles Monopole Production and Detection Monopolium Monopolium Production and Detection Moedal Concluding Remarks
4 Introduction In 1884 Pierre Curie suggested that magnetic monopoles could exist About the possibility of existence of magnetic conductivity and free magnetism. by M. P. Curie The paralelism between electric and magnetic phenomena leads to question us if this analogy is more complete. Is it absurd to assume that there exist bodies which are conductors of magnetism, of magnetic currents, of free magnetism?

8 A particle with charge, say an electron, traveling around some path P in a region with zero magnetic field (B = 0 = x A) must acquire a phase φ; given by:. The only way we would NOT see the Dirac string is if the wave function of the electron only acquired a trivial phase i.e. Φ = 2π N (n =1,2,3..). That is, if: Charge Quantization
9 Monopole Properties The Dirac monopole is a point like particle magnetic charge g = 68.5 e and no electric charge Monopoles accelerate along field lines according to the Equivalent Lorentz Eqn. F = gb + ep " B /#m 0 The monopole mass is not predicted within the Dirac s theory.!
10 Monopoles and Grand Unification Grand Unified gauge theories predict Monopoles: t Hooft and Polyakov (1974) discovered that monopoles are fundamental solutions to non Abelian gauge GUT theories These Monopoles have structure and no string singularity. The field of the GUT monopole is B ~ g/r 2 outside The Mass m(gut)m mx/g > GeV. not producible by particle accelerators primordial monopoles present in the Universe GUT monopoles can catalyze proton decay!
11 There are models For the desert where monopoles appear in a mass range accessible to the LHC: The electroweak ChoMaison monopole The TroostVinciarelli monopole The model of Weinberg, E. and collaborators Superstring models We shall take a phenomenological approach and assume that the mass is a parameter
12 The Monopole is a wishful object Dirac felt that he "would be surprised if Nature had made no use of it". Witten once asserted in his Loeb Lecture at Harvard, almost all theoretical physicists believe in the existence of magnetic monopoles, or at least hope that there is one. Polchinski described the existence of monopoles as "one of the safest bets that one can make about physics not yet seen" and that their existence seems inevitable in any framework that explains the quantization of electric charge. Of course their mass scale and abundance are highly uncertain,...
13 Monopole Production and Detection e > β g generalization as an s dependent form factor
14 term to be sufficient, for our purposes. Guided by simplicity and phenomenological inspiration we introduce an effective theory which is finite and well defined and we call this proposal the β scheme. Note that the GinzburgSchiller scheme and the β scheme are in some sense complementary. The former is valid below the monopole threshold, while the latter above since β vanishes below threshold. The aim here is to study possible signals of magnetic monopoles at LHC. According to previous studies [?], the most promising mechanism is photon fusion. The elementary diagrams contributing to pair production are those in Fig.??, wheretheexplicit couplings have been shown. The photonfusion elementary cross section is obtained fromthewellknownqed electronpositron pair creation cross section [?], simply changing the coupling constant (e gβ )andtheelectronmassbythemonopolemassm e m, leadingto σ(γγ mm) = π ( ( ) ) g4 (1 β 2 ) β 4 3 β 4 1+β log (2 β 2 ), (4) 2 m 2 2β 1 β Monopole Production where β is the monopole velocity, a function of the centerofmass energy, E. InFig.?? we show the ω = E/2 m dependence of the adimensional functional form of Eq.(??) to 10. show the effect of the β g coupling. The solid curve corresponds to the electronpositron case, the dashed one to the monopole case which contains the β 4 factor. One should notice the large effect associated 1. e e with this factor in the vicinity of the threshold.

We have assumed a monopole of mass 750 GeV, chosen because s turned out to be close to the expected magnitude of the Higgs to n above background. The cross sections are wide, almostgaussian, softly just above threshold (1500 GeV). LHC detectors are blind for g and have black spots due to construction features in the nonforward not allow for a full detection of photons. Therefore in order to obtain imation of the observable cross section we take the rightangle cross tiply it by 4π. Thisdifferential cross section is the smallest possible. rom threshold, it corresponds quite well to a realistic estimate, since,, the elementary differential cross section drops fast with angle and at the LHC. ould consider an efficiency factor for the various detectors. in a LogLog plot.

42 Concluding remarks We have shown that if non relic monopoles exist and their masses are in the TeV region they are soon to be found either as m  m pairs or monopolium much effort is going to go both in the more traditional schemes, Atlas and CMS, but also in a dedicated experiment Moedal. Magnetic monopoles can be detected by their high ionization, their binding to conventional particles and nuclei, diphoton events,...
43 Monopolium groud state is a very heavy neutral object > good diphoton signal (Z 0, W ±,...) > large magnetic polarizability (in the presence of large Bfields) > naively : difficult object for Moedal (?? elastic collisions) Monopolium excitations > multiphoton processes (pseudopolynomial trajectories) > excitation and ionization (multipole interactions) Dion formation > good Moedal candidates
