Description

The Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) is seeking to discover the axion particle as both a solution to the strong-CP puzzle of QCD and to the nature of dark matter. The apparatus consists of a frequency tune-able resonant microwave cavity immersed in a strong mechanical field at sub Kelvin temperatures and read out by quantum amplifiers. Recent results and future prospects at a sensitivity below the theoretical predictions will be given.
