April APS meeting

Monday April 15th, 2013


Admx recap

ADMX recap

The Axion Dark Matter eXperiment (ADMX) looks for axions in our galactic halo

We are the only experiment sensitive to plausible dark matter axions

Previous versions of ADMX were able to place bounds on realistic axions

Dmitry Lyapustin 2 April APS meeting


How sensitive are we

How sensitive are we?

By far the most sensitive radio receiver on Earth

Capable of detecting 10-26 W of radiative power

Your cellphone on Mars would get 4 bars*

*Without the ADMX shielding

Dmitry Lyapustin 3 April APS meeting


How can we do better

How can we do better?

Radiometer equation:

Previous versions of ADMX ran at ~ 4K system temperature

We are upgrading the experiment to use a dilution refrigerator

We expect to get down to ~ 100 mK with the upgrade

Parts design

Almost all components must be redesigned and built anew

The great majority of parts have been designed and built
