Title: Search for axioelectric effect of solar axions using BGO scintillating bolometer

Here, a search for axioelectric absorption of solar axions produced in the p+d→ 3He+γ (5.5 MeV) reaction has been performed with a BGO detector placed in a low-background setup. A model-independent limit on the combination of axion–nucleon and axion–electron coupling constants has been obtained: |g Ae x g$$3\atop{AN}$$| for 90 % confidence level. The constraint of the axion–electron coupling constant has been obtained for hadronic axion with masses of (0.1–1) MeV: |g Ae| ≤ (0.96 - 8.2) x 10 -8.
