  • Here, we show that dark matter axions cause an oscillating electric current to flow along magnetic field lines. The oscillating current induced in a strong magnetic field B 0 produces a small magnetic field B a. We propose to amplify and detect B a using a cooled LC circuit and a very sensitive magnetometer. This appears to be a suitable approach to searching for axion dark matter in the 10 –7 to 10 –9 eV mass range.
  • Signals for both direct and indirect dark matter detection depend on the phase-space distribution of dark matter. The possibility of structures with high physical density, known as caustics, has provided an opportunity to increase the discovery potential of the Axion Dark Matter eXperiment (ADMX). I discuss the formation of dark matter caustics and consequences of the caustic ring model for ADMX.
  • In the post-LHC8 era, it is perceived that what is left of SUSY model parameter space is highly finetuned in the EW sector (EWFT). We discuss how conventional measures overestimate EWFT in SUSY theory. Radiatively-driven natural SUSY (RNS) models maintain the SUSY GUT paradigm with low EWFT at 10% level, but are characterized by light higgsinos ~100–300 GeV and a thermal underabundance of WIMP dark matter. Implementing the SUSY DFSZ solution to the strong CP problem explains the small μ parameter but indicates dark matter should be comprised mainly of axions with a small admixture of higgsino-like WIMPs. While RNSmore » might escape LHC14 searches, we would expect ultimately direct detection of both WIMPs and axions. An e⁺e⁻ collider with √(s)~500–600 GeV should provide a thorough search for the predicted light higgsinos.« less
