Physicists have developed a method to search for elementary particles using quantum technologies

Researchers from China's University of Science and Technology and the Helmholtz Institute in Mainz used a spinal amplifier to limit hypothetic fluctuations of axions within the "axial window." This will help explore a large number of hypothetic particle parameters.

The exchange of axions between farmers results in exotic dipole-dipole interactions, which can be found in laboratory experiments, explained by scientists. In a paper published in the magazine Physical Review Letters, researchers used a large set of polarized ruby-87 electrons and polarized xenon-129 nuclear backs as two types of farmion.

During the exchange of axions, rubies generate an exotic signal on the nuclear backs of the xeon, and they are already being used for the resonant search for the signal. Researchers have shown that the long-lived backs of xenone-129 act as a quantum pretensile capable of increasing the exotic signal more than 40 times for the mass of the axion within the "axion window".

Increased sensitivity in the right range is believed by the authors to increase the chances of research into elemental particles.

Axion is a hypothetical neutral pseudo-scalular elemental particle predicted by Pepchea's theory, Quinn. If the axions exist and have a small mass in a given range, they are of interest as a possible component of cold dark matter. These particles can be the key to explaining some of the deepest mysteries of our universe, such as dark matter and charge equilibration with strong interactions.

Several recent theories predicted that the mass of axions is likely to lie in an "axion window." However, existing laboratory experiments and astrophysical observations are mostly looking for these particles outside the right range.

Scientists note that quantum amplifier techniques can also be used to search for other elemental particles outside the Standard Model, such as new dark photons with back 1.
