Most matter in the Universe is invisible and unknown, and is called dark matter. A candidate of dark matter is the axion, which is an ultralight particle motivated as a solution for the CP problem. Axions form clouds in a galactic halo, and amplify and delay a part of gravitational waves propagating in the clouds. The Milky Way is surrounded by the dark matter halo composed of a number of axion patches. Thus, the characteristic secondary gravitational waves are always expected right after the…

Gravitational waves and neutrino oscillations in Chern-Simons axion gravity

We investigate the modifications in the neutrino flavor oscillations under the influence of a stochastic gravitational wave background (SGWB), in a scenario in which General Relativity is modified by

Detecting ultralight axion dark matter wind with laser interferometers

The ultralight axion with mass around $10^{-22}$ eV is known as a candidate of dark matter. A peculiar feature of the ultralight axion is oscillating pressure in time, which produces oscillation of

Pulsar timing signal from ultralight scalar dark matter

An ultralight free scalar field with mass around 10−23−10−22 eV is a viable dark mater candidate, which can help to resolve some of the issues of the cold dark matter on sub-galactic scales. We

Chern-Simons axion gravity and neutrino oscillations

We investigate the modifications in the neutrino flavor oscillations under the influence of a stochastic gravitational wave background (SGWB), in a scenario in which General Relativity is modified by an

Axion dark matter: What is it and why now?

The axion has emerged in recent years as a leading particle candidate to provide the mysterious dark matter in the cosmos, as we review here for a general scientific audience. We describe first the

Resonant gravitational waves in dynamical Chern–Simons–axion gravity

In this paper, we consider dynamical Chern–Simons gravity with the identification of the scalar field coupled though the Pontryagin density with the axion dark matter, and we discuss the effects of

Heating of Milky Way disc stars by dark matter fluctuations in cold dark matter and fuzzy dark matter paradigms

Although highly successful on cosmological scales, cold dark matter (CDM) models predict unobserved overdense ‘cusps’ in dwarf galaxies and overestimate their formation rate. We consider an

Search for Axionlike Dark Matter through Nuclear Spin Precession in Electric and Magnetic Fields

We report on a search for ultra-low-mass axion-like dark matter by analysing the ratio of the spinprecession frequencies of stored ultracold neutrons and 199Hg atoms for an axion-induced oscillating

Constraints on ultralight scalar dark matter from pulsar timing

We performed a Bayesian analysis of pulsar timing residuals from the NANOGrav pulsar timing array to search for a specific form of stochastic narrow-band signal produced by oscillating gravitational

The bosenova and axiverse

We report some new interesting features of the dynamics of a string axion field (i.e., a (pseudo-)scalar field with tiny mass with sine-Gordon-type self-interaction) around a rotating black hole in

Astrophysical Limits on Very Light Axion-like Particles from Chandra Grating Spectroscopy of NGC 1275

Axions/axion-like particles (ALPs) are a well-motivated extension of the Standard Model and are generic within String Theory. The X-ray transparency of the intracluster medium (ICM) in galaxy
