The axion is a well-motivated cold dark matter (CDM) candidate first postulated to explain the absence of $CP$ violation in the strong interactions. CDM axions may be detected via their resonant conversion into photons in a "haloscope" detector: a tunable high-$Q$ microwave cavity maintained at cryogenic temperature, immersed a strong magnetic field, and coupled to a low-noise receiver. This dissertation reports on the design, commissioning, and first operation of the Haloscope at Yale… 
Axion Dark Matter Research with IBS/CAPP
The axion, a consequence of the PQ mechanism, has been considered as the most elegant solution to the strong-CP problem and a compelling candidate for cold dark matter. The Center for Axion and
Dielectric-Boosted Sensitivity to Cylindrical Azimuthally Varying Transverse-Magnetic Resonant Modes in an Axion Haloscope
Axions are a popular dark matter candidate which are often searched for in experiments known as ``haloscopes" which exploit a putative axion-photon coupling. These experiments typically rely on
Dielectric Boosted Axion Haloscope Sensitivity In Cylindrical Azimuthally Varying Transverse Magnetic Resonant Modes
Axions are a popular dark matter candidate which are often searched for in experiments known as ``haloscopes" which exploit a putative axion-photon coupling. These experiments typically rely on
Improved analysis framework for axion dark matter searches
In experiments searching for axionic dark matter, the use of the standard threshold-based data analysis discards valuable information. We present a Bayesian analysis framework that builds on an
Supax: A new axion search experiment using superconductive cavities
We propose a new experiment to search for axions with masses around 30 `eV using superconductive cavities in a strong magnetic field. Axions are hypothetical particles that could solve the well known
Sub-GeV Dark Matter Searches and Electric Field Studies for the LUX and LZ Experiments
The nature of dark matter (DM) remains a mystery since it has so far eluded detection in the laboratory. To that end, the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment was built to directly observe the
Axion Haloscope Using an 18 T High Temperature Superconducting Magnet
We report details on the axion dark matter search experiment that uses the innovative technologies of a High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnet and a Josephson Parametric Converter (JPC). An 18
Revisiting the detection rate for axion haloscopes
The cavity haloscope has been employed to detect microwave photons resonantly converted from invisible cosmic axions under a strong magnetic field. In this scheme, the axion-photon conversion power
First Results from an Axion Haloscope at CAPP around 10.7  μeV.
The exclusion of the axion mass range 10.7126-10.7186  μeV with near Kim-Shifman-Vainshtein-Zakharov (KSVZ) coupling sensitivity and therange 10.16-11.37‬‬V with about 9 times larger coupling at 90% confidence level is reported, the first axion search result in these ranges.
Axion dark matter experiment: Run 1B analysis details
Searching for axion dark matter, the ADMX collaboration acquired data from January to October 2018, over the mass range 2.81--3.31 $\mu$eV, corresponding to the frequency range 680--790 MHz. Using an


An improved RF cavity search for halo axions
The axion is a hypothetical elementary particle and cold dark matter candidate. In this RF cavity experiment, halo axions entering a resonant cavity immersed in a static magnetic field convert into
Cosmological limits on axions and axion-like particles
The axion is a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson. It appears after the spontaneous breaking of the Peccei-Quinn symmetry, which was proposed to solve the strong-CP problem. Other pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone
Search for Halo Axions
A collaboration of MIT, LLNL, Univ. of Florida, FNAL, UC Berkeley and INR Moscow have built a large-scale RF cavity axion detector. The experiment has been taking production data since February of
