"The Search for Axion Dark Matter with ADMX"

Gray Rybka , University of Washington
[Host: David Nichols & Bradley Johnson]

The particle nature of dark matter is an outstanding mystery at the intersection of particle physics and cosmology.  The axion, originally proposed to explain a purely particle physics problem, is one of the most compelling candidates for dark matter.  In the last decade, the field of axion searches has undergone a renaissance of new ideas and improvements to experimental sensitivities.  I will give a brief overview of the field of dark matter axion searches and a more detailed look into the leading axion dark matter search, ADMX.
