The ALPS Light Shining Through a Wall Experiment - WISP Search in the Laboratory
In the last years it has been realized, that extensions of the Standard Model may manifest itself also at meV energy scales. The low energy frontier is a rich complement to the conventional
Straightening of superconducting HERA dipoles for the any-light-particle-search experiment ALPS II
At DESY the ALPS II experiment is being installed in the HERA tunnel to search for axion like particles. A laser beam will be injected into the magnetic field of a string of superconducting (s.c.)
Axion Searches at the LHC: FASER as a Light Shining through Walls Experiment
We propose the use of FASER as a light-shining-through-walls experiment to search for axions. LHC collisions generate a high intensity and high energy photon flux in the forward direction which can
Status of ALPS-II at DESY
The light-shining-through-a-wall (LSW) experiment ALPS at DESY provides the current best lab-based bounds for WISP couplings. Based on this success, preparations for ALPSII have started. The aim is
Improving the Discovery Potential of Future Light-Shining-through-a-Wall Experiments
Planning for the next generation of light-shining-through-wall experiments has started. It is therefore timely to investigate possible ways to optimize their setups. The goals are to improve the
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 sourced
Axion-like-particle search with high-intensity lasers
We study ALP -photon-conversion within strong inhomogeneous electromagnetic fields as provided by contemporary high-intensity laser systems. We observe that probe photons traversing the focal spot of
Microwave cavity light shining through a wall optimization and experiment
It has been proposed that microwave cavities can be used in a photon regeneration experiment to search for hidden sector photons. Using two isolated cavities, the presence of hidden sector photons


No "light shining through a wall": results from a photoregeneration experiment.
The 2sigma limits obtained so far are presented and it is found that the axionlike particle two photons inverse coupling constant M is >8 x 10{5} GeV provided that the particle mass m{a} approximately 1 meV.
Experimental limit on optical-photon coupling to light neutral scalar bosons.
We report on the first results of a sensitive search for scalar coupling of photons to a light neutral boson in the mass range of approximately 1.0 meV (milli-electron volts) and coupling strength
Search for axionlike particles using a variable-baseline photon-regeneration technique.
The first results of the GammeV experiment are reported, a search for milli-eV mass particles with axionlike couplings to two photons using a "light shining through a wall" technique, finding no excess of events above background and constraining the two-photon couplings of possible new scalar (pseudoscalar) particles to be less than 3.1x10;(-7) GeV-1.
Status of the ALPS Experiment
The ALPS experiment at DESY searches for light particles which are coupling very weakly to photons. Primary physics goal is the search for axion like particles in a photon regeneration experiment.
Accelerator cavities as a probe of millicharged particles
We investigate Schwinger pair production of millicharged fermions in the strong electric field of cavities used for particle accelerators. Even without a direct detection mechanism at hand,
Search for photon oscillations into massive particles
Recently, axionlike particle search has received renewed interest, and several groups have started experiments. In this paper, we present the final results of our experiment on photon-axion
Searching hidden-sector photons inside a superconducting box
We propose an experiment to search for extra “hidden-sector" U(1) gauge bosons with small gauge kinetic mixing χ with the ordinary photon, predicted by many extensions of the Standard Model. The

Abstract.In this paper, we describe in detail the BMV (Biréfringence Magnétique du Vide) experiment, a novel apparatus to study the propagation of light in a transverse magnetic field. It is based on
