IAXO - the next generation axion helioscope
IAXO aims to detect solar axions, as they are converted into X-rays along a strong magnet pointing towards the sun. This detection could single-handedly resolve the strong CP problem and represent the first observation of a dark matter candidate in the laboratory. I will present the status of the IAXO project and our work towards a low-background silicon drift detector.
