Fluidic Endogenous Magnetism and Magnetic Monopole Clues from Liquid Metal Droplet Machine

Magnetism and magnetic monopole are classical issues in basic physics. Conventional magnets are generally composed of rigid materials with shapes and structures unchangeable which may face challenges

Electromagnetic asymmetry, relegation of curvature singularities of charged black holes, and cosmological equations of state in view of the Born–Infeld theory

It is shown that the Born–Infeld nonlinear electrodynamics with a polynomial type nonlinearity accommodates finite-energy electric point charges but rejects finite-energy magnetic point charges, or

Dyonic Matter Equations, Exact Point-Source Solutions, and Charged Black Holes in Generalized Born--Infeld Theory

We derive the equations of motion governing static dyonic matters, described in terms of two real scalar fields, in nonlinear electrodynamics of the Born–Infeld theory type. We then obtain some exact



Creation of Dirac monopoles in spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.

It is demonstrated theoretically that, by using external magnetic fields, one can imprint pointlike topological defects on the spin texture of a dilute Bose-Einstein condensate, providing an ideal analogue to the monopole studied by Dirac.

Observation of Dirac monopoles in a synthetic magnetic field

These real-space images provide conclusive and long-awaited experimental evidence of the existence of Dirac monopoles, and provides an unprecedented opportunity to observe and manipulate these quantum mechanical entities in a controlled environment.

Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field

The steady progress of physics requires for its theoretical formulation a mathematics that gets continually more advanced. This is only natural and to be expected. What, however, was not expected by
