A SQUID-Based RF Cavity Search for Dark Matter Axions
The axion is a hypothetical elementary particle resulting from a solution to the “Strong-CP” problem. This serious problem in the standard model of particle physics is manifested as a 10<super>10</super> discrepancy between the measured upper limit and the calculated value of the neutron's electric dipole moment. Furthermore, ...
Searching for neutrinoless double-beta decay of germanium-76 in the presence of backgrounds
The neutrino, an elementary particle, has been the subject of experimental investigation for over 50 years. Recent experiments have shown that neutrinos have mass and oscillate, but questions about fundamental properties of the neutrino remain. The observation of neutrinoless double-beta decay could determine whether lepton ...
