Abstract

The SLIM1 experiment was an array of 427 m^2 of nuclear track detectors (NTDs), exposed at a high altitude laboratory (Chacaltaya, Bolivia, 5230 m a.s.l.), for 4.22 years. SLIM was sensitive to downgoing intermediate mass magnetic monopoles with masses of 10^5 GeV/c^2- 10^12 GeV/c^2. The analysis of the full detector gives a flux upper limit of 1.3 10–15 cm–2 s–1 sr–1 with the 90% Confidence Level (C.L.) for downgoing fast intermediate mass magnetic monopoles.
