  • We present the first results of searches for axions and axionlike particles with the XENON100 experiment. The axion-electron coupling constant, g Ae , has been probed by exploiting the axioelectric effect in liquid xenon. A profile likelihood analysis of 224.6 live days × 34-kg exposure has shown no evidence for a signal. By rejecting g Ae larger than 7.7×10 −12 (90% C.L.) in the solar axion search, we set the best limit to date on this coupling. In the frame of the DFSZ and KSVZ models, we… CONTINUE READING
