Axion

    Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory physicist Darin Kinion at work on an experiment, known as the Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX), which is designed to find the elusive particle by measuring its decay into a microwave photon in the presence of a strong magnetic field. He is guiding the experimental apparatus containing the microwave cavity and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) amplifiers into the cavity of a superconducting electromagnet. The disks on top of the ADMX device are thermal shields. [More information]
