Title: Probing axions with the measurements of photon's birefringence
Date (JST): Thu, Dec 08, 2022, 16:00 - 16:30
Place: Zoom
Abstract: Axions are the promising candidate for the dark sector of our universe. Most of the previous axion searches were based on the axion-photon conversion under the background magnetic field. Recently, however, new search methods for axions based on the photon's birefringence effect, which does not use external magnetic fields, have been proposed. In this talk, we introduce how to search for this effect by the use of optical interferometers or CMB polarization measurements.
