The puzzle of what constitutes Dark Matter is arguably one of the most pressing issues in contemporary physics. Given the increasing number of null-results in attempts to find Dark Matter candidates at very high energy scales, a paradigm shift has taken place during the past few years: A well-motivated DM candidate exists at much smaller masses, called the axion, and a steep increase of experiments to try to find it can be seen In this talk we’ll review the axion and review two newer attempts to unveil it: One using fixed-target beams and one using a direct detection method with high-frequency RF structures.
