The observed anomalous steady decrease in surface temperature of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A), which was reported about ten years ago, has generated much debate. Several exotic cooling scenarios have been proposed using non-standard assumptions about the physics and evolution of this neutron star (NS). At present, significant corrections have been made to the observational data, which make it possible to numerically simulate the Cas A NS cooling process in the framework of the… 
Thermal QCD Axions across Thresholds
Abstract Thermal axion production in the early universe goes through several mass thresholds, and the resulting rate may change dramatically across them. Focusing on the KSVZ and DFSZ frameworks for
Dark gauge boson production from neutron stars via nucleon-nucleon bremsstrahlung
We discuss the dark gauge boson emission from neutron stars via nucleonnucleon bremsstrahlung. Through the rigorous treatment of the effective field theory prescription and the thermal effect, we

Neutron interferometry, fifth force and axion like particles
We propose a new possible detection strategy to reveal the fermion–fermion interaction mediated by axions and axion-like particles, based on interferometric measurement of neutron beams. We consider

Limit on the axion decay constant from the cooling neutron star in Cassiopeia A
The observed rapid cooling of the neutron star (NS) located at the center of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A) can be explained in the minimal NS cooling scenario. This consequence may be
Axion mass limit from observations of the neutron star in Cassiopeia A
Direct Chandra observations of a surface temperature of isolated neutron star in Cassiopeia A (Cas A NS) and its cooling scenario which has been recently simultaneously suggested by several
Direct Observation of the Cooling of the Cassiopeia A Neutron Star
The cooling rate of young neutron stars (NSs) gives direct insight into their internal makeup. Although the temperatures of several young NSs have been measured, until now a young NS has never been
Cooling neutron star in the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant: evidence for superfluidity in the core
According to recent results of Ho & Heinke, the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant contains a young (?330-yr-old) neutron star (NS) which has carbon atmosphere and shows notable decline of the effective
Axion cooling of neutron stars. II. Beyond hadronic axions
We study the axion cooling of neutron stars within the DFSZ model, which allows for tree-level coupling of electrons to the axion. This extends our previous study [Phys. Rev. D 93, 065044 (2016)]

To constrain the allowed range for the axion decay constant $f_{a}$ or, equivalently, for the axion mass $m_{a}$, we consider the cooling of a neutron star with strong proton superfluidity and normal
Axion cooling of neutron stars
Cooling simulations of neutron stars and their comparison with the data from thermally emitting x-ray sources put constraints on the properties of axions, and by extension, of any light pseudoscalar
Cooling of the neutron star in Cassiopeia A
We demonstrate that the high-quality cooling data observed for the young neutron star in the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A over the past 10 years---as well as all other reliably known temperature
Axion Mass Limits from Cooling Neutron Stars
The thermal evolution of a neutron star is studied by including the energy loss due to axion emission. Two axion models and three types of neutron-star matter equation of state are used with the
Upper Limits on the Rapid Cooling of the Central Compact Object in Cas A
The Central Compact Object (CCO) in the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant is most likely a very young (≈300 years) neutron star. If a previously reported decrease of its surface temperature by 4% in 10
