First results of the CAST-RADES haloscope search for axions at 34.67 μeV
Abstract We present results of the Relic Axion Dark-Matter Exploratory Setup (RADES), a detector which is part of the CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST), searching for axion dark matter in the 34.67
Axion Dark Matter: How to detect it?
The axion, originated from the Peccei-Quinn mechanism proposed to solve the strong-CP problem, is a well motivated and popular dark matter candidate. Experimental searches for this hypothetical
A first look on 3D effects in open axion haloscopes
We explore finite size 3D effects in open axion haloscopes such as a dish antenna, a dielectric disk and a minimal dielectric haloscope consisting of a mirror and one dielectric disk. Particularly
Axion Dark Matter Research with IBS/CAPP
The axion, a consequence of the PQ mechanism, has been considered as the most elegant solution to the strong-CP problem and a compelling candidate for cold dark matter. The Center for Axion and
A first proof of principle booster setup for the MADMAX dielectric haloscope
Axions and axion-like particles are excellent low-mass dark matter candidates. The MADMAX experiment aims to directly detect galactic axions with masses between 40 and $$400\,\upmu \mathrm{eV}$$ 400
Broadband Solenoidal Haloscope for Terahertz Axion Detection.
We introduce the Broadband Reflector Experiment for Axion Detection (BREAD) conceptual design and science program. This haloscope plans to search for bosonic dark matter across the [10^{-3},1]  eV
Revisiting the detection rate for axion haloscopes
The cavity haloscope has been employed to detect microwave photons resonantly converted from invisible cosmic axions under a strong magnetic field. In this scheme, the axion-photon conversion power
Simulating MADMAX in 3D: requirements for dielectric axion haloscopes
We present 3D calculations for dielectric haloscopes such as the currently envisioned MADMAX experiment. For ideal systems with perfectly flat, parallel and isotropic dielectric disks of finite
Axion Search with a Quantum-Limited Ferromagnetic Haloscope.
The scientific run of the ferromagnetic axion haloscope resulted in the best limit on dark matter axions to electron coupling constant in a frequency span of about 120 MHz, corresponding to the axion-mass range 42.4-43.1  μeV.


Future directions in the microwave cavity search for dark matter axions
The axion is a light pseudoscalar particle which suppresses CP-violating effects in strong interactions and also happens to be an excellent dark matter candidate. Axions constituting the dark matter
3D lumped LC resonators as low mass axion haloscopes
The axion is a hypothetical particle considered to be the most economical solution to the strong $CP$ problem. It can also be formulated as a compelling component of dark matter. The haloscope, a
High and low mass Axion Haloscopes at UWA
We consider the design of a haloscope experiment (ORGAN) to probe for axions at 26.6 GHz. The motivation for this search is to perform the first direct test of a result which claims a possible axion
First Results from a Microwave Cavity Axion Search at 24  μeV.
By incorporating a dilution refrigerator and Josephson parametric amplifier, this work has demonstrated total noise approaching the standard quantum limit for the first time in an axion search and reached cosmologically relevant sensitivity an order of magnitude higher in mass than any existing limits.
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. In
Dielectric Haloscopes: A New Way to Detect Axion Dark Matter.
A new strategy to search for dark matter axions in the mass range of 40-400 μeV is proposed by introducing dielectric haloscopes, which consist of dielectrics disks placed in a magnetic field to satisfy the continuity requirements at the interfaces.

The axion is an excellent dark matter candidate motivated by the Peccei-Quinn solution to the strong-CP problem. The IBS Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (CAPP) in Korea will explore
A Broadband/Resonant Approach to Axion Dark Matter Detection
When ultralight axion dark matter encounters a static magnetic field, it sources an effective electric current that follows the magnetic field lines and oscillates at the axion Compton frequency. We

This work considers both resonant and broadband readout circuits and shows that a broadband approach has advantages at small axion masses, and demonstrates potential sensitivity to axionlike dark matter with masses in the range of 10^{-14}-10^{-6}  eV.

It is provided theoretical arguments that dark-matter axions from the galactic halo that pass through Earth may generate a small observable signal in resonant S/N/S Josephson junctions that is consistent with theory and can be interpreted in terms of an axion mass m(a)c2=0.11  meV and a local galactic axionic dark- Matter density of 0.05‬GeV/cm3.
