  • Magnetic monopoles have eluded experimental detection since their prediction nearly a century ago by Dirac. Recently it has been shown that classical analogues of these enigmatic particles occur as excitations out of the topological ground state of a model magnetic system, dipolar spin ice. These quasi-particle excitations do not lead to a modification of Maxwell's equations, but they do interact via Coulombs law and they are of magnetic origin. In this paper we present an experimentally… CONTINUE READING
