We explore finite size 3D effects in open axion haloscopes such as a dish antenna, a dielectric disk and a minimal dielectric haloscope consisting of a mirror and one dielectric disk. Particularly dielectric haloscopes are a promising new method for detecting dark matter axions in the mass range above 40 μeV. By using two specialized independent approaches—based on finite element methods and Fourier optics —we compute the electromagnetic fields in these settings expected in the presence of an… 

A first proof of principle booster setup for the MADMAX dielectric haloscope

Axions and axion-like particles are excellent low-mass dark matter candidates. The MADMAX experiment aims to directly detect galactic axions with masses between 40 and $$400\,\upmu \mathrm{eV}$$ 400

Within the dual symmetric point of view, the theory for seeking axion dark matter via haloscope experiments is derived by exactly solving the dual symmetric axion electrodynamics equation.

Dark matter axion detection in the radio/mm waveband

We discuss axion dark matter detection via two mechanisms: spontaneous decays and resonant conversion in neutron star magnetospheres. For decays, we show that the brightness temperature signal,

We introduce the concept of impedance matching to axion dark matter by posing the question of why axion detection is difficult, even though there is enough power in each square meter of incident

Axion quasiparticles for axion dark matter detection

It has been suggested that certain antiferromagnetic topological insulators contain axion quasiparticles (AQs), and that such materials could be used to detect axion dark matter (DM). The AQ is a
