Dark matter breakthrough: Mystery particle can be heard - 'Like fine tuning a radio' 1

Dr Matthew Lawson who led the study said: “Without the cold plasma, axions cannot efficiently convert into light.

“The plasma plays a dual role, both creating an environment which allows for efficient conversion, and providing a resonant plasmon to collect the energy of the converted dark matter.”

Dr Millar added: “This is totally a new way to look for dark matter, and will help us search for one of the strongest dark matter candidates in areas that are just completely unexplored.

“Building a tuneable plasma would allow us to make much larger experiments than traditional techniques, giving much stronger signals at high frequencies.”
