Özet

A decommissioned LHC test magnet is being prepared as the CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST) experiment. The magnet has a field of 9.6 Tesla and length of 10 meters. It is being mounted on a platform to track the sun over +/-8(0) vertically and +/-45(0), horizontally. A sensitivity in axion-photon coupling g(agammagamma) < 5 x 10(-11)GeV(-1) can be reached for m(a) less than or equal to 10(-2) eV, and with a gas filled tube-can reach g(agammagamma) less than or equal to 10(-10)GeV(-1) for axion masses m(a) < 2eV.
