ABSTRACT The SLIM experiment was a large array of nuclear track detectors located at the Chacaltaya high altitude Laboratory (5230m
a.s.l.). The detector was in particular sensitive to intermediate mass magnetic monopoles, with masses 105GeV <MM< 1012GeV. From the analysis of the full detector exposed for more than 4 years a flux upper limit of 1.3×10-15cm-2 s-1 sr-1 for downgoing fast intermediate mass monopoles was established at the 90% C.L.
