Production Cross Sections of Axion in a Static Electromagnetic Field

Dang Van Soa, Tran Dinh Tham


Photon - axion conversions in staticelectromagnetic fields of the size \(a\times b \times c\) areconsidered in detail by the Feynman diagram methods. Thedifferential cross sections are presented and the numericalevaluations of the total cross section are given. Our result showsthat the conversion cross-sections in the electric field are quitesmall, while in the strong magnetic field, the cross-sections are much enhanced, which can be measurable in current experiments.
