Description

The Axion Dark Matter eXperiment (ADMX) is a cavity haloscope search for dark matter axions. The Gen 2 version ADMX has the goal of being sensitive to even the pessimistically coupled axions in the well motivated 1-10 GHz frequency region. This will be a significant improvement over previous cavity searches, and have a good chance of discovering the axion, or ruling out an interesting parameter space. I will discuss the ADMX Gen 2 program highlighting recent commissioning, near term-data taking, long term search strategies, and challenges and technologies involved with reaching higher frequencies.
