    ATLAS homes in on magnetic monopoles Ana Lopes abelchio Fri, 06/14/2019 - 11:00 Conventional bar magnets are also called ‘magnetic dipoles’ because they have two magnetic poles (a “North” and a “South” magnetic pole, like the Earth). In theory, “magnetic monopoles” could exist that act like an isolated “magnetic charge”, i.e. either a “North” or […]
