The Ultra-Light Frontier

Workshop at JGU in June 2015
Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics

The Workshop started on Monday with an overview talk on axions and ALPs by Prof. Georg Raffelt (Munich), who described how these particles arise in the context of the early universe, and what we can learn about them from astrophysics. Following the general trend of the Workshop of mixing theoretical and experimental talks, this was followed by an overview of the cosmic axion spin precession experiment (CASPEr) currently being setup at Mainz (to search for the “axion-wind” effects) and Boston University (to search for the axion coupling to gluons via induced electric dipole moment EDM, of the nucleus)....
