The Haloscope at Yale Sensitive to Axion CDM (HAYSTAC) experiment, located in Wright Lab, is searching for a dark matter candidate called the axion using innovative quantum sensing technology. 

The experiment is co-led by Wright Lab professors of physics Steve Lamoreaux and Reina Maruyama.
Maruyama and HAYSTAC were both featured in a recent “Science” magazine article (Science, Vol 376, Issue 6592) called “A quantum sense for dark matter”.  To read the full article, please click the link below.
