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 are thus relaxed, allowing for axion masses up to O(0.1)  eV. The axion-photon coupling remains instead sizable, so that next-generation helioscopes will be able to probe this scenario. Astrophobia unavoidably implies flavor-violating axion couplings so that experimental limits on flavor-violating processes...

QCD Axion Dark Matter with a Small Decay Constant.

The QCD axion is a good dark matter candidate. The observed dark matter abundance can arise from misalignment or defect mechanisms, which generically require an axion decay constant f_{a}∼O(10^{11})  GeV (or higher). We introduce a new cosmological origin for axion dark matter, parametric resonance from oscillations of the Peccei-Quinn symmetry breaking field, that requires f_{a}∼(10^{8}-10^{11})  GeV. The axions may be warm enough to give deviations from cold dark matter in large scale structur...

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...

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 this epoch. We demonstrate that, by virtue of the ability to mediate cooling processes while in the condensed phase, a small amount of axion dark matter can explain these observations within the context of standard models of axions and axionlike particles. The EDGES best-fit result favors an axionlike particle m...

Stimulated Axion Decay in Superradiant Clouds around Primordial Black Holes.

The superradiant instability can lead to the generation of extremely dense axion clouds around rotating black holes. We show that, despite the long lifetime of the QCD axion with respect to spontaneous decay into photon pairs, stimulated decay becomes significant above a minimum axion density and leads to extremely bright lasers. The lasing threshold can be attained for axion masses μ≳10^{-8}  eV, which implies superradiant instabilities around spinning primordial black holes with mass ≲0.01  M...

Experimental Constraint on an Exotic Spin- and Velocity-Dependent Interaction in the Sub-meV Range of Axion Mass with a Spin-Exchange Relaxation-Free Magnetometer.

We conducted a search for an exotic spin- and velocity-dependent interaction for polarized electrons with an experimental approach based on a high-sensitivity spin-exchange relaxation-free (SERF) magnetometer, which serves as both a source of polarized electrons and a magnetic-field sensor. The experiment aims to sensitively detect magnetic-fieldlike effects from the exotic interaction between the polarized electrons in a SERF vapor cell and unpolarized nucleons of a closely located solid-state mass. We rep...

Axion-Plasmon Polaritons in Strongly Magnetized Plasmas.

Axions are hypothetical particles related to the violation of the charge-parity symmetry within the strong sector of the standard model, being one of the most prone candidates for dark matter. Multiple attempts to prove their existence are currently performed in different physical systems. Here, we predict that axions may couple to the electrostatic (Langmuir) modes of a strongly magnetized plasma, and show that a new quasiparticle can be defined, the axion-plasmon polariton. The excitation of axions can be...

Axion-Driven Cosmic Magnetogenesis during the QCD Crossover.

We propose a mechanism for the generation of a magnetic field in the early Universe during the QCD crossover assuming that dark matter is made of axions. Thermoelectric fields arise at pressure gradients in the primordial plasma due to the difference in charge, energy density, and equation of state between the quark and lepton components. The axion field is coupled to the EM field, so when its spatial gradient is misaligned with the thermoelectric field, an electric current is driven. Because of the finite ...

Strongly Coupled Anisotropic Gauge Theories and Holography.

We initiate a nonperturbative study of anisotropic, nonconformal, and confining gauge theories that are holographically realized in gravity by generic Einstein-axion-dilaton systems. In the vacuum, our solutions describe renormalization group flows from a conformal field theory in the UV to generic scaling solutions in the IR with generic hyperscaling violation and dynamical exponents θ and z. We formulate a generalization of the holographic c theorem to the anisotropic case. At finite temperature, we disc...
