A Strategy to Make and Manipulate Magnetic Monopoles by Exploiting Interfaces

Long considered unachievable, magnetic monopoles have been realized in bulk crystals in recent years as ensembles containing equal numbers of monopoles and antimonopoles. In this form, exciting fundamental questions about the existence, properties, and dynamics of individual magnetic monopoles remain unanswered or inaccessible.
