Expected Run:  1 year
Mississippi State Axion Search
Location:  Mississippi State University, Hilbun Hall
Type:  Light Shining Through a Wall Experiment (LSW)
EM Source:  .7m, 50W continuous radio wave emitter
Physics Goal:  To place limits between the mass and coupling constant of axion like particles and para- photons.

Mississippi State Axion Search is the first of its kind light shining through the wall experiment designed to operate using a continuous radio wave emitter as the source of photons. The experiment contains a radio source and a set of detectors separated by a wall. The aim of the experiment is to limit the mass and coupling constants of an axion like particle or a para photon by looking at the photons on the dark side of the tuned cavity. The experiment is projected to be completed by 2016.
