Searching for the QCD axion

by Javier Redondo (Munich, MPI & Universidad de Zaragoza)

Tuesday, 30 May 2017 from to (Europe/Madrid)
at IFIC ( 1001-Primera-135, Nave Exp. Sala de Audiovisuales )
Paterna (Valencia)
Description
The hypothetical QCD axion invoked to solve the strong CP problem is a good dark matter candidate with potential characteristic signatures and can have interesting effects on stellar evolution. We will review its motivation, signatures and the wealth of experimental searches that will operate in the near future to find this elusive particle.
