Optical Ring Cavity Search for Axion Dark Matter.

Summary of "Optical Ring Cavity Search for Axion Dark Matter."

We propose a novel experiment to search for axion dark matter that differentiates the phase velocities of the left- and right-handed polarized photons. Our optical cavity measures the difference of the resonant frequencies between two circular polarizations of the laser beam. The design of our cavity adopts a double-pass configuration to realize a null experiment and give a high common mode rejection of environmental disturbances. We estimate the potential sensitivity to the axion-photon coupling constant g_{aγ} for the axion mass m≲10^{-10}  eV. In a low mass range m≲10^{-15}  eV, we can achieve g_{aγ}≲3×10^{-16}  GeV^{-1}, which is beyond the current bound by several orders of magnitude.

Piezoelectrically Tuned Multimode Cavity Search for Axion Dark Matter.

The μeV axion is a well-motivated extension to the standard model. The Axion Dark Matter eXperiment (ADMX) collaboration seeks to discover this particle by looking for the resonant conversion of dark...

Radio Signals from Axion Dark Matter Conversion in Neutron Star Magnetospheres.

We show that axion dark matter may be detectable through narrow radio lines emitted from neutron stars. Neutron star magnetospheres host both a strong magnetic field and a plasma frequency that increa...

Natural Explanation for 21 cm Absorption Signals via Axion-Induced Cooling.

The EDGES Collaboration has reported an anomalously strong 21 cm absorption feature corresponding to the era of first star formation, which may indirectly betray the influence of dark matter during t...

Search for Boosted Dark Matter Interacting with Electrons in Super-Kamiokande.

A search for boosted dark matter using 161.9 kt yr of Super-Kamiokande IV data is presented. We search for an excess of elastically scattered electrons above the atmospheric neutrino background, wi...

Astrophobic Axions.

We propose a class of axion models with generation-dependent Peccei-Quinn charges for the known fermions that allow one to suppress the axion couplings to nucleons and electrons. Astrophysical limits ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.

Microscopic imaging techniques that utilize nonlinear responses of light-matter interactions which occur with high-intensity illumination, such as from LASERS, and specialized light signal detection instrumentation to produce images without the need for dyes or fluorescent labels.

Products or parts of products used to detect, manipulate, or analyze light, such as LENSES, refractors, mirrors, filters, prisms, and OPTICAL FIBERS.

Adjustment of the eyes under conditions of low light. The sensitivity of the eye to light is increased during dark adaptation.

An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
