Abstract

Shortly after the publication of a candidate event for the passage of a magnetic monopole by Cabrera1 our group decided to set up a similar experiment. Because of the far reaching consequences of the existence of monopoles, if confirmed, an independent and carefully prepared experiment seemed to be necessary. The main new features of our experiment would be first, a larger effective area, an order of magnitude greater than Cabrera’s original; second, provisions for coincidence/anticoincidence measurements; and third, a stable low field magnetic environment around the superconducting shield, so as to reduce the risk of flux motion in this shield. The experiment needs to be isolated from external influences as well as possible mechanical and electrical influences, etc. It is necessary also to monitor all relevant parameters such as magnetic field, mechanical stability, r.f.-level, electrical interference.
