Abstract

The work at the National Bureau of Standards has had three major goals. First, to investigate sources of noise in SQUID-based detector systems and to develop techniques to minimize their disruptive effects. Second, to investigate and identify sources of signals similar in size and signature to those expected from a monopole passage and, again, to eliminate them. Third, to participate in the search for the monopole. To these ends, we have constructed and operated a two-coil coincidence system in several configurations for well over 1000 hours. Because our efforts have been concentrated on the investigation of anomalous effects, not many of these hours can be considered as true detector time.
