Description

Axions are well motivated both by particle phenomenlogy and by the dark matter problem, In this talk, I will survey the key techniques and experiments currently searching for evidence of axions in our galactic halo, originating from the sun, or produced in the lab, and the effort to probe the wider parameter space of axion--like particles. Finally, I consider some possible future directions in the continuing quest to shed light on this interesting sector.

Summary

An overview of the current state of play in experimental searches for axions and axion-like particles
