New method of galactic axion search.

N. Sasao, M. Yoshimura

An important and appealing candidate of the galactic dark matter is the axion, which was postulated to solve the CP (Charge-conjugation Parity) violation problem in strong interaction of the standard particle theory. A new experimental method is proposed to determine both the axion mass and its velocity distribution on Earth. The method uses collectively and coherently excited atoms or molecules triggered by strong laser field, resulting in galactic axion absorption along with signal photon emission to be detected.
