Karl van Bibber (UCB) – A Primer on the Axion

April 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This is the first of a two-part series on the axion and the current experimental campaign to find it. This first seminar will focus on the history and motivation of the axion, rooted in the Strong-CP problem, i.e. the absence of the neutron electric dipole moment, some phenomenology, and an overview of experimental avenues to detect the axion. In the second part next week, by Maria Simanovskaia, one particular experiment, HAYSTAC will be presented in detail, which searches for the axion as the dark matter of the universe.
