Search for relativistic magnetic monopoles with five years of the ANTARES detector data
Rights accessOpen Access
A search for magnetic monopoles using five years of data recorded with the ANTARES neutrino telescope from January 2008 to December 2012 with a total live time of 1121 days is presented. The analysis is carried out in the range ß > 0.6 of magnetic monopole velocities using a strategy based on run-by-run Monte Carlo simulations. No signal above the background expectation from atmospheric muons and atmospheric neutrinos is observed, and upper limits are set on the magnetic monopole flux ranging from 5.7 × 10-16 to 1.5 × 10-18 cm-2·s-1·sr-1.[Figure not available: see fulltext.].
