New manifestation of magnetic monopoles discovered

While magnetic monopoles in the form of elementary particles remain elusive, there have been some recent successes in engineering objects that behave effectively like magnetic monopoles. Now, scientists at IST Austria have shown that there is a much simpler way to observe them: they have demonstrated that superfluid helium droplets can act as magnetic monopoles. Such droplets have been studied for decades, but until now, this fascinating characteristic had gone entirely unnoticed. …read more
