Abstract

The nature and composition of dark matter is one of the greatest mysteries facing the world of modern science. One of the most promising dark matter candidates is a hypothetical particle known as the axion.
This work focuses on the "axion haloscope", an axion dark matter detection technique that aims to detect axions by converting them into photons.
Much of this work relates to the design, commissioning, initial operation and future planning of The ORGAN Experiment, a high mass axion haloscope. The first results and future plans of ORGAN are discussed, along with various techniques to improve axion haloscopes.
