We report the results from a haloscope search for axion dark matter in the 3.3-4.2  μeV mass range. This search excludes the axion-photon coupling predicted by one of the benchmark models of "invisible" axion dark matter, the Kim-Shifman-Vainshtein-Zakharov model. This sensitivity is achieved using a large-volume cavity, a superconducting magnet, an ultra low noise Josephson parametric amplifier, and sub-Kelvin temperatures. The validity of our detection procedure is ensured by injecting and…

Near-Quantum-Noise Axion Dark Matter Search at CAPP around 9.5 $\mu$eV

We report the results of an axion dark matter search over an axion mass range of 9.39–9.51 µ eV. A flux-driven Josephson parametric amplifier (JPA) was added to the cryogenic receiver chain. A system

Direct search for dark matter axions excluding ALP cogenesis in the 63- to 67-μeV range with the ORGAN experiment

The standard model axion seesaw Higgs portal inflation (SMASH) model is a well-motivated, self-contained description of particle physics that predicts axion dark matter particles to exist within the

The Canfranc Axion Detection Experiment (CADEx): Search for axions at 90 GHz with Kinetic Inductance Detectors

. We propose a novel experiment, the Canfranc Axion Detection Experiment (CADEx), to probe dark matter axions with masses in the range 330 – 460 µ eV , within the W-band ( 80 – 110 GHz ), an

Ultra wideband axion search using a Faraday haloscope

Dark matter is a major constituent of our universe and the axion is a prime candidate. In this article, it is shown that by using the axion induced magnetization in a magnetic rod and the Faraday

Search for 70 \mu eV Dark Photon Dark Matter with a Dielectrically-Loaded Multi-Wavelength Microwave Cavity

Microwave cavities have been deployed to search for bosonic dark matter candidates with masses of a few µ eV. However, the sensitivity of these cavity detectors is limited by their volume, and the

Searching for axion-like time-dependent cosmic birefringence with SPT-3G Probing axionlike

TLDR
Observations of the cosmic microwave background from SPT-3G, the current receiver on the South Pole Telescope, are used to set upper limits on the value of the axion-photon coupling constant g φγ over the approximate mass range, corresponding to oscillation periods from 12 hours to 100 days.

Searching for axionlike time-dependent cosmic birefringence with data from SPT-3G

Ultralight axionlike particles (ALPs) are compelling dark matter candidates because of their potential to resolve small-scale discrepancies between ΛCDM predictions and cosmological observations.

ADMX-Orpheus First Search for 70 $\mu$eV Dark Photon Dark Matter: Detailed Design, Operations, and Analysis

Dark matter makes up 85% of the matter in the universe and 27% of its energy density, but we don’t know what comprises dark matter. It is possible that dark matter may be composed of either axions or

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

Experimental Constraints on the Axion Dark Matter Halo Density

Most of the mass of the Milky Way is contributed by its halo, presumably in the form of noninteracting cold dark matter. The axion is a compelling cold dark matter candidate. We report results from a

The dark-matter axion mass

We evaluate the efficiency of axion production from spatially random initial conditions in the axion field, so a network of axionic strings is present. For the first time, we perform numerical

Axion Dark Matter Experiment: Detailed design and operations.

TLDR
The technological advances made in the last several years to achieve the most sensitive axion search experiment to date in this mass range are discussed, which includes the implementation of components, such as the state-of-the-art quantum-noise-limited amplifiers and a dilution refrigerator.

Axion dark matter: strings and their cores

Axions constitute a well-motivated dark matter candidate, and if PQ symmetry breaking occurred after inflation, it should be possible to make a clean prediction for the relation between the axion

Dark matter from axion strings with adaptive mesh refinement

Axions are hypothetical particles that may explain the observed dark matter density and the non-observation of a neutron electric dipole moment. An increasing number of axion laboratory searches are

Calculation of the axion mass based on high-temperature lattice quantum chromodynamics

TLDR
This work determines the axion mass using lattice QCD, assuming that these particles are the dominant component of dark matter, and determines the universal axionic angle that corresponds to the initial condition of the authors' Universe.
