Axion-Like Particles and the X-ray universe

by Dr Markus Rummel (McMaster University)


Axion-Like Particles (ALPs) are light particles that are among the leading candidates for new physics beyond the standard model. Their coupling to electromagnetism leads to a rich phenomenology, especially in astrophysical environments. I present how current and future X-ray data on galaxy clusters and active galactic nuclei allows to constrain the properties of ALPs.
