Workshop: HIgh MAgnetic Fields for FUNdamental Physics (HIMAFUN), 29 & 30. May 2017

Organized by Prof. Dmitry Budker (HIM), Dr. Geert Rikken (University of Toulouse III), Prof. Carlo Rizzo (University of Toulouse III)
Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses – Toulouse, France

High magnetic fields are a very important tool for investigating matter properties. In particular, their impact in fundamental physics is astonishing. They constitute the base of instrumentation like
accelerators and particle detectors. They are also a unique probe to test fundamental particles properties like in the case of the electron magnetic anomalous moment and in more general terms to test Quantum Electrodynamics in bound systems and in vacuum. Physics beyond the standard model also needs high magnetic fields to answer questions still open as in the case of axion and axionlike particle search.

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)....
