Description

The axion is a well-motivated dark matter candidate inspired by the
Peccei-Quinn solution to the Strong-CP problem. After decades of
work, the US DOE flagship axion dark matter search, ADMX G2, is the
first experiment to be sensitive to dark matter axions from the
plausible DFSZ coupling model, and has begun to search the
theoretically-favored axion mass region 2-40 micro-eV. ADMX G2 could
now discover dark matter at any time. I will report the first results
from exploring the range around 2.7 micro-eV last year, discuss this
year's operations and review the ADMX G2 plans to continue the search
to cover the entire mass range.
