magnetic monopole mass


Shortly after the publication of Dirac's seminal paper [1] on the quantization of electric charge in 1931, experimenters began the search for magnetic monopoles. Dirac's result indicated a value for magnetic charge of a monopole, but the mass was not predicted and could be any value.

what is the source?


Many of the studies that have detected the unusual particle tracks [1] that we have discussed before are connected with low energy nuclear reactions (LENR). The connection between these tracks and LENR is not totally straightforward.

Most of the studies in the LENR literature have evolved from the initial Pons and Fleishman cold fusion experiments and load a metal such as palladium with hydrogen in an electrolytic setup. The reaction thought to occur in cold fusion at room temperature,

\begin{equation*} \text{D} + \text{D} \rightarrow ^4\!\!\text{He} \end{equation*}

is a nuclear reaction that should not be taking place under these conditions.

analysis of groups of tracks


In my last post, as a preliminary, I showed evidence that the tracks in my experiments must be particles. Here we continue, going a bit deeper into the analysis, to show in addition that the curvature seen in certain exposures is due to a point-like central force rather than an applied or ambient uniform field.

are these particle tracks?


I want to take a hard look at the concept that new physics may be in play for experiments, based upon the new effect I observed for photographic emulsions [1] that were mentioned in my last post. One of the first questions that comes up is the question as to whether or not these tracks [1] are being created by some types of particles. How can we answer this?
