Title: Proposal for Axion Dark Matter Detection Using an L C Circuit

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.
