The Quest for the Axion

by Andreas Ringwald (DESY)

The axion arises in the course of an elegant explanation why time reversal invariance has not been observed to date in strong interactions. In addition, it is a very good candidate for dark matter in the universe. There are new, relatively small experiments around the globe, which are hunting the axion and complement the search for physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider.
