Photons can mix with low-mass bosons in the presence of external electromagnetic fields if these particles---not necessarily of spin 1---couple by a two-photon vertex. Important examples are the hypothetical axion (spin 0) and graviton (spin 2). We develop a formalism which is adapted to study the evolution of a photon (axion, graviton) beam in the presence of external fields. We apply our results to discuss the possibility of detecting axions by a measurement of the magnetically induced…

Photons in a cold axion background and strong magnetic fields: Polarimetric consequences
In this work, we analyze the propagation of photons in an environment where a strong magnetic field (perpendicular to the photon momenta) coexists with an oscillating cold axion background with the
Upper limit on the axion-photon coupling from magnetic white dwarf polarization
Polarization measurements of thermal radiation from magnetic white dwarf (MWD) stars have been proposed as a probe of axion-photon mixing. The radiation leaving the surface of the MWD is unpolarized,
Axion-Like Particles, Magnetars, and X-ray Astronomy
Axions are beyond-the-Standard-Model particles introduced to explain the strongCPproblem of QCD. Axion-like particles are generalizations of axions and they occur naturally in top-down approaches to

Graviton-photon mixing
In the era of gravitational wave (GW) detection from astrophysical sources by LIGO/VIRGO, it is of great importance to take the quantum gravity effect of graviton-photon (GRAPH) mixing in the cosmic
