Upper Limit of Axion-Photon Coupling on the Galaxy Cluster Modulation
My research project aims to investigate the upper limit of axion-photon coupling from galaxy cluster modulation. The goal is to use simulations to further push the limit of axion-photon coupling and get closer to the theoretical strength of axion-photon coupling, which would verify the existence of axion-like particles. This is essential in the investigation of particle physics and would solve the strong CP problem.
Message To SponsorI would like to thank the SURF program for the opportunity. I am also grateful to the donor who has generously funded my project, helping me to accomplish my project successfully.
