The illusive nature of dark matter has puzzled physicists and astronomers for decades. Scientists around the globe are actively searching for the undiscovered, invisible matter that seems to comprise over 85 percent of the mass density of the observable universe.
Axions are an increasingly popular dark matter candidate that originally arose as part of an effort to address the surprising preservation of charge-parity symmetry in some particle physics interactions.
In this talk, we will discuss the search for axions, some of the questions that they address, and the exciting role of new technologies in the search for new physics.
