Description

The main research focus of the IBS Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (CAPP) is to establish a state-of-the-art axion experiment in Korea and to search for relic axion particles converting to microwave photons in a resonant cavity submerged in a strong magnetic field. The initial stage of building our axion experiment, CULTASK (CAPP Ultra Low Temperature Axion Search in Korea) is completed at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology) with successful installation of two new dilution refrigerators (one with 8T superconducting magnet) which could lower the temperature of cavities to less than 50 mK. A resonant cavity (10 cm OD) and the support structure were fabricated and installed with the frequency tuning system employing a sapphire rod driven by a piezoelectric actuator. I will discuss the status and progress of CULTASK, soon to be complete with a DAQ and monitoring system, and future plans.
