In the recent work [1], it was claimed that networks of quantum sensors can be used as sensitive multi-messenger probes of astrophysical phenomena that produce intense bursts of relativistic bosonic waves which interact non-gravitationally with ordinary matter. The most promising possibility considered in [1] involved clock-based searches for quadratic scalar-type interactions, with greatly diminished reach in the case of magnetometer-based searches for derivative-pseudoscalar-type interactions…

Quantum sensor networks as exotic field telescopes for multi-messenger astronomy

Multi-messenger astronomy, the coordinated observation of different classes of signals that originate from the same astrophysical event, provides a wealth of information about astrophysical processes

Optical atomic clock aboard an Earth-orbiting space station (OACESS): enhancing searches for physics beyond the standard model in space

We present a concept for a high-precision optical atomic clock (OAC) operating on an Earth-orbiting space station. This pathfinder science mission will compare the space-based OAC with one or more

Spontaneous Scalarization with Massive Fields

We study the effect of a mass term in the spontaneous scalarization of neutron stars, for a wide range of scalar field parameters and neutron star equations of state. Even though massless scalars

Violation of the equivalence principle from light scalar dark matter

In this paper, we study the local observational consequences of a violation of the Einstein Equivalence Principle induced by models of light scalar Dark Matter (DM). We focus on two different models

New bounds on macroscopic scalar-field topological defects from nontransient signatures due to environmental dependence and spatial variations of the fundamental constants

We point out that in models of macroscopic topological defects composed of one or more scalar fields that interact with standard-model fields via scalar-type couplings, the back-action of ambient

Tests of chameleon gravity

The present state-of-the-art searches for screened scalars coupled to matter are summarized, and the current bounds on f(R) models that exhibit the chameleon mechanism are translated into a single parametrization to survey the state of the models.

Slowly rotating neutron stars in scalar-tensor theories with a massive scalar field

In the scalar-tensor theories with a massive scalar field the coupling constants, and the coupling functions in general, which are observationally allowed, can differ significantly from those in the

Screening long-range forces through local symmetry restoration.

A screening mechanism that allows a scalar field to mediate a long-range force of gravitational strength in the cosmos while satisfying local tests of gravity and predicting deviations from general relativity in the solar system that are within reach of next-generation experiments, as well as astrophysically observable violations of the equivalence principle.

Spontaneous-scalarization-induced dark matter and variation of the gravitational constant

We propose a new scalar-tensor model which induces significant deviation from general relativity inside dense objects like neutron stars, while passing solar-system and terrestrial experiments,

Environmental Dependence of Masses and Coupling Constants

We construct a class of scalar field models coupled to matter that lead to the dependence of masses and coupling constants on the ambient matter density. Such models predict a deviation of couplings

Nonperturbative strong-field effects in tensor-scalar theories of gravitation.

It is shown that a wide class of tensor-scalar theories can pass the present weak-field gravitational tests and exhibit nonperturbative strong-field deviations away from general relativity in systems
