Making a Universe with Axions
Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (University of New Hampshire)

What’s an axion and why do people keep talking about Bose-Einstein condensates in space? In this talk, I will describe the axion as a popular solution for open problems in particle physics, most notably dark matter. I will discuss the possibility that neutron stars are astrophysical axion laboratories and what we may learn in future endeavors, including proposed X-ray and Gamma-ray missions such as STROBE-X, eXTP, and AMEGO.
