Description

Cosmic Axion Spin Precession Experiment (CASPEr) is a laboratory scale search for the nature of dark matter. CASPEr searches for the axion and axion-like-particles (ALPs) as dark matter candidate in the mass range of a few feV to $\mu$eV [D. F. Jackson Kimball, et al., arXiv:1711.08999]. CASPEr uses experimental techniques based on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and precision magnetometry. In this talk, I will report on the experimental status of CASPEr.
