A magnetic monopole is a stable particle carrying magnetic charge, it is suggested by the symmetry of Maxwell's equations and appears in e.g. Grand Unification Theories. Originally it was proposed by Dirac in 1931 as a way to quantize electric charge: $e_0 g_0$ = $n\hbar c/2$, thus giving minimal Dirac charge $g_D$ = $68.5e$. Modern experiments focus on high ionization of a Dirac charge, while lower charge monopoles predicted by other theories are easy to be missed without a dedicated tracking and trigger setup.
In this work, an overview of the search for magnetic monopoles with Belle II detector is presented.
