Title: Axion Detection with Nonlinear Dielectric Materials

Abstract

Axion Halsocopes require high-Q tunable microwave resonators. As axion searches move to higher frequencies, tuning resonators with mechanical motion becomes increasingly difficult. An alternative to mechanical motion is to change the dielectric constant inside the cavity by applying a DC voltage across a nonlinear dielectric material. In this work, a strontium titanate crystal is used to shift the frequency of a microwave cavity by 0.046%.
