Séminaire de Physique ThéoriqueElectroweak Thunderbolts

We present a detailed analysis of new solutions in the bosonic sector of the electroweak theory which describe vortices carrying a constant electric current. Their current is produced by the condensate of vector W bosons in the vortex core and typically it can attain billions of Amperes.
