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 the experimental results for the interaction of solar axions and axion-like particles with matter are given. The second part is actually observationally driven. New results obtained with Monte Carlo simulation reconstruct solar observations, previously dismissed, supporting an axion(-like… 
Towards a new generation axion helioscope
We study the feasibility of a new generation axion helioscope, the most ambitious and promising detector of solar axions to date. We show that large improvements in magnetic field volume, x-ray
Towards a medium-scale axion helioscope and haloscope
We discuss the physics case for and the concept of a medium-scale axion helioscope with sensitivities in the axion-photon coupling a few times better than CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST). Search
Solar Axion search with Micromegas detectors in the CAST Experiment with $^{3}$He as buffer gas
Axions are well motivated particles proposed in an extension of the Standard Model (SM) as a solution to the CP problem in strong interactions. On the other hand, there is the category of axion-like
New Journal of Physics Axions as dark matter particles
We overview the current status of axions as dark matter. The axion is the pseudo-Nambu–Goldstone boson which arises from the Peccei–Quinn solution to the strong CP problem. Additionally, cold axion
Detection Prospects for Solar and Terrestrial Chameleons
Dark energy models, such as the chameleon, where the acceleration of the expansion of the universe results from the dynamics of a scalar field coupled to matter, suffer from the potential existence
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
J Search for 14 . 4 keV solar axions emitted in the M 1-transition of 57 Fe nuclei with CAST CAST collaboration
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 axionto-photon conversion in the CERN
X-Ray Signatures of Axion Conversion in Magnetic White Dwarf Stars.
TLDR
It is shown that the radiated axions may convert into x rays in the strong magnetic fields surrounding the WDs, leading to observable x-ray signatures, allowing for a definitive test of the axionlike-particle explanation of the stellar cooling anomalies.
Coronal heating problem solution by means of axion origin photons
Abstract In this paper we advocate for the idea that two seemingly unrelated mysteries with almost 90 year history – the nature of dark matter and the million-degree solar corona – may be but two
Axions as dark matter particles
We overview the current status of axions as dark matter. The axion is the pseudo-Nambu–Goldstone boson which arises from the Peccei–Quinn solution to the strong CP problem. Additionally, cold axion

TLDR
Model-dependent bounds based on axion emission from red giants are m/sub a/ <1 eV (KSVZ) and m/ sub a/<0.06 eV(DFS) and the mass limits for the DFS axions are understood for the special case where the free parameter 2 cosSUS of the model equals unity.
