*Time: June 10th (Wed.)

*Location: Room #31214, Natural Science Building 1


*Title: Closing in on the Axion Dark Matter hypothesis

*Abstract: The dark matter mystery is one of the most fundamental questions in physics today. What is the invisible matter that’s holding the stars together in galaxies, and the galaxies together in our universe? Axions, particles that were invented to solve a major problem in strong interactions, are a leading candidate for the dark matter particle. According to theoretical models the axion field permeates all space, oscillating at a specific, yet unknown, frequency. I will describe how we, at the Center for Axion and Precision Physics research of the institute for basic science (CAPP/IBS), plan to search for them and eventually either detect them or eliminate them from a large favorable parameter space.
