magnetic monopole
magnetic monopole magnetic monopole (Physics), a hypothetical subatomic particle having only one type of magnetic charge, the magnetic analogue of an electrically charged particle; it has only one magnetic pole instead of the two observed in all common magnetic object; -- it was still not observed as of 1998.
