The GammeV laser experiments will be described which have already produced results for a search for low mass axion-like scalar and pseudoscalar particles. A modification of the design of the apparatus has allowed for a search for a chameleon particle - a possible particle candidate for dark energy. New results from GammeV-CHASE, a new dedicated CHameleon Afterglow Search Experiment, will be presented. Future work at Fermilab in this area includes R&D towards a much more sensitive axion-like particle search as well as a new initiative to test for the holographic nature of space time.
