Axions from the Lab to the Cosmos

Friday September 4, 2020
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Yoni Kahn, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  As the gravitational evidence for the existence of dark matter accumulates inexorably, the particle identity of dark matter remains mysterious. One of the best theoretically-motivated dark matter candidates, with some of the most interesting experimental signals, is the axion. Axions are expected to interact very weakly with electromagnetism, which leads to the possibility of detecting axions through conversion to photons in strong magnetic fields. I will review the status of several new experiments and searches aiming to detect axion dark matter on Earth, in astrophysical systems, and produced in the laboratory.
