  • It has recently been predicted that certain magnetic materials contain mobile magnetic charges or ‘monopoles’. Here we address the question of whether these magnetic charges and their associated currents (‘magnetricity’) can be directly measured in experiment, without recourse to any material-specific theory. By mapping the problem onto Onsager’s theory of weak electrolytes, we show that this is possible, and devise an appropriate method. Then, using muon spin rotation as a convenient local… CONTINUE READING
