Description

MoEDAL is a pioneering experiment designed to search for highly ionizing messengers of new physics such as magnetic monopoles or massive (pseudo-)stable charged particles.
Recently MoEDAL released its first results on a search for monopoles, using data collected at 8 TeV, and based on a prototype of the magnetic monopole trapper. The trapper material got analysed with a SQUID at the University of Zurich.
MoEDAL has also collected data with the full detector during the 2015 LHC run, using several monopole detection techniques, and these data are being analysed now. Recent results of MoEDAL and prospects for the upcoming LHC runs will be
discussed.
