It is shown that the hypothesis of the axion mechanism of Sun luminosity suggesting that the solar axion particles are born in the core of the Sun and may be efficiently converted back into $\gamma$-quanta in the magnetic field of the solar overshoot tachocline is physically relevant. As a result, it is also shown that the intensity variations of the $\gamma$-quanta of axion origin, induced by the magnetic field variations in the tachocline, directly cause the Sun luminosity %and total solar… 
High-energy photon polarimeter for astrophysics
Abstract. A high-energy photon polarimeter for astrophysics studies in the energy range from 10 to 800 MeV is considered. The proposed concept uses a stack of silicon microstrip detectors, where they
Inflation Due to Quantum Potential
In the framework of a cosmological model of the Universe filled with a nonrelativistic particle soup, we easily reproduce inflation due to the quantum potential. The lightest particles in the soup


Direct search for solar axions by using strong magnetic field and X-ray detectors
We have searched for axions which could be produced in the solar core by exploiting their conversion to X rays in a strong laboratory magnetic field. The signature of the solar axion is an increase
Axion mechanism of the Sun luminosity and solar dynamo - geodynamo connection
We show existence of strong negative correlation between the temporal variations of magnetic field toroidal component of the solar tachocline (the bottom of convective zone) and the Earth magnetic
Photon-axion conversion as a mechanism for supernova dimming: Limits from CMB spectral distortion
Axion-photon conversion induced by intergalactic magnetic fields has been proposed as an explanation for the dimming of distant supernovae of type Ia SNe Ia) without cosmic acceleration. The effect
Search for sub-electronvolt solar axions using coherent conversion of axions into photons in magnetic field and gas helium
Abstract A search for solar axions has been performed using an axion helioscope which is equipped with a 2.3-m long 4 T superconducting magnet, PIN-photodiode X-ray detectors, and a telescope mount
Search for 14.4 keV solar axions emitted in the M1-transition of 57Fe nuclei with CAST
We have searched for 14.4 keV solar axions or more general axion-like particles (ALPs), that may be emitted in the M1 nuclear transition of 57Fe, by using the axion-to-photon conversion in the CERN
First results from the CERN axion solar telescope.
An upper limit to the axion-photon coupling g(agamma)<1.16x10(-10) GeV-1 at 95% C.L. for m(a) less, similar to the limit from stellar energy-loss arguments and considerably more restrictive than any previous experiment over a broad range of axion masses.
Effects of axion-photon mixing on gamma-ray spectra from magnetized astrophysical sources
Astrophysical {gamma}-ray sources come in a variety of sizes and magnetizations. We deduce general conditions under which {gamma}-ray spectra from such sources would be significantly affected by
Search for solar axions by the CERN axion solar telescope with 3He buffer gas: closing the hot dark matter gap.
From the absence of excess x rays when the magnet was pointing to the Sun, the CERN Axion Solar Telescope set a typical upper limit on the axion-photon coupling of gaγ, with the exact value depending on the pressure setting.
Axion searches with helioscopes and astrophysical signatures for axion(-like) particles
Axions should be produced copiously in stars such as the Sun. The first part of this paper reviews the capabilities and performance of axion helioscopes. The mechanism they rely on is described and
Photon production from the scattering of axions out of a solenoidal magnetic field
We calculate the total cross section for the production of photons from the scattering of axions by a strong inhomogeneous magnetic field in the form of a 2D δ-function, a cylindrical step function
