Mr Grzegorz Lukasiewicz (Jagiellonian University)
Not only optical magnetometers are the most sensitive sensors of magnetic fields, but they may also be used for searches of non-magnetic spin couplings, including those associated with interaction with dark matter. In particular, GNOME uses the magnetometers to search for the ultralight dark matter (axions and axion-like particles). The talk will cover selected dark-matter spin-dependent scenarios that can be investigated using GNOME. They include searches for dark-matter topological defects (domain walls) and stochastic fluctuations of the dark-matter field. Specific attention will be paid to the presentation of data analysis methods.
