Figure 2: Effect of a monopole-type defect on atomic clocks.

From: Hunting for topological dark matter with atomic clocks

Figure 2

Simulated response of an Earth-scale constellation of atomic clocks to a 0D Gaussian-profiled topological defect (monopole) of effective radius 0.75R. The monopole centre is displaced from the collision axis by 0.2R. Earth’s centre and the clocks lie in the collision plane. The polar angles of the three clocks are π/2, π, −π/4 in a reference frame centred at the Earth’s centre.
