Abstract

We search for pair-produced Dirac magnetic monopoles in 35.7pb-1 of proton-antiproton collisions at s=1.96TeV with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). We find no monopole candidates corresponding to a 95% confidence-level cross-section limit σ<0.2pb for a monopole with mass between 200 and 700GeV/c2. Assuming a Drell-Yan pair-production mechanism, we set a mass limit m>360GeV/c2. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
