Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. Search for magnetic monopoles in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using data with a total integrated luminosity of 2.0 fb-1. Magnetic monopoles are characterized by large localized energy deposits in the LAr EM calorimeter (EMCLUSTER) in conjunction with a region of high ionization density in the transition radiation tracker, TRT. This record lists the efficiency for detection of such monopoles of two masses (200 and 1500 GeV) and the upper limits of the cross sections assuming production by Drell-Yan processes and in the fiducual region.
