Physics beyond the Standard Model predicts the possible existence of new particles that can be searched at the low-energy frontier in the sub-eV range. The OSQAR photon regeneration experiment looks for ``light shining through a wall'' from the quantum oscillation of optical photons into ``weakly interacting sub-eV particles,'' such as axion or axionlike particles (ALPs) in a 9 T transverse magnetic field over a length of $2\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}14.3\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{m}$.

Axion detection through resonant photon-photon collisions
We investigate the prospect of an alternative laboratory-based search for the coupling of axions and axion-like particles to photons. Here, the collision of two laser beams resonantly producesExpand
Probing Axionlike Particles and the Axiverse with Superconducting Radio-Frequency Cavities.
A new experiment using superconducting radio-frequency cavities which is sensitive to light ALPs independent of their contribution to the cosmic dark matter density, and discusses how the ALP contribution may be separated from the QED contribution by a suitable choice of pump modes and cavity geometry.

New CAST Limit on the Axion-Photon Interaction
During 2003--2015, the CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST) has searched for $a\to\gamma$ conversion in the 9 T magnetic field of a refurbished LHC test magnet that can be directed toward the Sun. InExpand
Improved Limits on Spin-Mass Interactions.
Improved constraints are placed on the products of scalar and pseudoscalar coupling constants for axionlike particle masses less than 10^{-6}  eV, which represents an order of magnitude improvement over the best previous neutron laboratory limit. Expand
Axion-Like Particle Searches with IACTs
The growing interest in axion-like particles (ALPs) stems from the fact that they provide successful theoretical explanations of physics phenomena, from the anomaly of the CP-symmetry conservation inExpand
New experimental approaches in the search for axion-like particles
Axions and other very light axion-like particles appear in many extensions of the Standard Model, and are leading candidates to compose part or all of the missing matter of the Universe. They alsoExpand
Galactic axions search with a superconducting resonant cavity
To account for the dark matter content in our Universe, post-inflationary scenarios predict for the QCD axion a mass in the range $(10-10^3)\,\mu\mbox{eV}$. Searches with haloscope experiments inExpand
New constraints on the axion's coupling to nucleons from a Spin Mass Interaction Limiting Experiment (SMILE)
Long range anomalous spin-mass interactions are a generic feature of many theories beyond the Standard Model. They are typically mediated by a light pseudoscalar boson with CP -violating couplingsExpand
An even lighter QCD axion
We explore whether the axion which solves the strong CP problem can naturally be much lighter than the canonical QCD axion. The $Z_\mathcal{N}$ symmetry proposed by Hook, with $\mathcal{N}$ mirrorExpand
Axion searches with two superconducting radio-frequency cavities
Abstract We propose an experimental setup to search for Axion-like particles (ALPs) using two superconducting radio-frequency cavities. In this light-shining-through-wall setup the axion is sourcedExpand
