The German community interested in IAXO gathered at DESY, Hamburg, on May 24th. The meeting had the aim to discuss the physics cases that can be investigated with IAXO, as well as the status of the project and next steps. In addition, the current involvement of German groups was presented, and potential future collaborations were discussed.

In its 112th Meeting held on 14-15 January 2014, the SP and SPS Committee emitted formal recommendations after the reception of our LoI. The full minutes of the meeting can be found here. The committee acknowledges the physics of IAXO and recommends the collaboration to proceed with the Technical Design Report. The paragraph addressing IAXO reads:

Home - The International Axion Observatory

Welcome to the home page of the IAXO project!

The International Axion Observatory (IAXO) is a proposed fourth generation axion helioscope. It aims at a sensitivity much improved with respect to past and current axion searches, with real discovery potential.

The conceptual design of the experiment has been finished and a Letter of Intent  submitted to CERN. Recently, the SPSC has recognised the physics case of IAXO and has recommended to proceed with a Technical Design Report.
