Searches for Axion-Like Particles with X-ray astronomy

Abstract:

Axion-Like Particles (ALPs) are a very well-motivated class of Beyond the Standard Model particles. They can be implemented as a minimal extension of the Standard Model that could solve many mysteries (the Strong CP Problem, Dark Matter, origin of Inflation), and also commonly arise in String Theory compactifications. This motivates the commissioning of dedicated experiments looking for these particles, as well as the utilisation of telescope data to search for their astrophysical effects....
