Welcome to AxionDM @ Stockholm

The nature of the dark matter is one of the most profound unanswered questions in fundamental physics. The axion is a leading dark matter candidate that would additionally remove a major blemish on the Standard Model of particle physics – the Strong CP problem which, without the axion, constitutes an inexplicable level of fine-tuning. The goal of this project is to seed and develop bold new ideas and technologies from material science that can revolutionise the search for the dark matter axion, and to use astronomical observations to search for complementary signals.

This project, funded by a Research Environment Grant (2020-2025) from the Swedish Research Council, leverages the convergence of expertise in axion physics, dark matter detection, material science and cosmology at Stockholm University. Our research has received support from the European Research Council under grant agreement No.742104.
