Relativistic spin dynamics conditioned by dark matter axions

  title={Relativistic spin dynamics conditioned by dark matter axions},
  author={Alexander J. Silenko},
The relativistic spin dynamics defined by the pseudoscalar field of dark matter axions is rigorously determined. The relativistic Hamiltonian in the Foldy-Wouthuysen representation is derived. It agrees with the previously obtained nonrelativistic Hamiltonians and the relativistic classical estimation of the axion wind effect. In the relativistic Hamiltonian, the biggest term describes the extraordinary (three orders of magnitude) enhancement of the axion wind effect in storage ring experiments… Expand


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 oscillatingExpand
Proposal for a Cosmic Axion Spin Precession Experiment (CASPEr)
We propose an experiment to search for QCD axion and axionlike-particle dark matter. Nuclei that are interacting with the background axion dark matter acquire time-varying C P -odd nuclear momentsExpand
Axion dark matter searches
Nearly all astrophysical and cosmological data point convincingly to a large component of cold dark matter in the Universe. The axion particle, first theorized as a solution to the strongExpand
New Observables for Direct Detection of Axion Dark Matter
We propose new signals for the direct detection of ultralight dark matter such as the axion. Axion or axionlike particle dark matter may be thought of as a background, classical field. We considerExpand
Foldy-Wouthyusen transformation and semiclassical limit for relativistic particles in strong external fields
A general method of the Foldy-Wouthyusen (FW) transformation for relativistic particles of arbitrary spin in strong external fields has been developed. The use of the found transformation operator isExpand
Position and spin in relativistic quantum mechanics
The problem of the position and spin in relativistic quantum mechanics is analyzed in detail. It is definitively shown that the position and spin operators in the Foldy-Wouthuysen representation (butExpand

It is shown that using the Sun as a source of arions it is easy to surpass the astrophysical limit for its existence in a laboratory experiment, while it is practically impossible for axions. Expand
Precession of the Polarization of Particles Moving in a Homogeneous Electromagnetic Field
The problem of the precession of the “spin” of a particle moving in a homogeneous electromagnetic field — a problem which has recently acquired considerable experimental interest — has already beenExpand
A Search for Axion-like Particles with a Horizontally Polarized Beam In a Storage Ring
A new method has been demonstrated using a polarized deuteron beam in the storage ring COSY to search for axion-like particles. The signal would be a resonant jump in the vertical polarizationExpand
