Abstract:
Searches for the QCD axion involve counting single microwave photons in very-low-background environments. Superconducting quantum bits are appropriate for this purpose. The basic experimental setup involves several technologies and methods that may be familiar to those with a background in accelerator physics and technology. Axion-to-photon conversion is induced by means of a strong superconducting magnet. Signal photons are resonantly accumulated in a high-Q cavity, which is then coupled to the qubit. This talk will highlight some of the common points of interest between the accelerator community and those using quantum sensors for dark matter searches.
