Abstract

Abstract J. Schwinger has suggested that magnetically charged particles could be produced via a magnetically charged intermediate boson process similar to the mechanism sometimes envisioned for double muon production by neutrinos. A search for magnetic monopole production by neutrinos has been made by reexamining the CERN heavy liquid bubble chamber pictures obtained during the neutrino exposures of 1963 and 1967. Five different searches were made for events which contained a free monopole with and without target nucleus excitation, and for bound monopoles which deexcited by photon emission. No events were found. Neutrino monopole production cross-section limits are given.
