    MoEDAL hunts for dyons Ana Lopes abelchio Thu, 02/13/2020 - 10:27 A magnetic monopole is a theoretical particle with a magnetic charge. Give it an electric charge, and you get another theoretical beast, dubbed a dyon. Many “grand unified theories” of particle physics, which connect fundamental forces at high energies into a single force, predict […]
