Ultrasensitive Searches for the Axion

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The axion, a hypothetical elementary particle arising from a compelling solution to the strong-CP problem, has eluded discovery for three decades. Experiments based on coherent axion-photon mixing in strong magnetic fields are just now reaching the sensitivity to detect it, either as the dark matter or as a component of the solar flux. Although of lower sensitivity, purely laboratory experiments hold potential for surprise.
