Light through the wall – take 2

| 15 September 2011 DESY’s ALPS experiment aims high by searching low, looking for lightweight particles in the low-energy range. The lightweight particles could clue us into the nature of dark matter or dark energy, and ALPS is being upgraded to make more precise measurements than it could before.

From DESY inForm: Light at the end of the magnet?

23 July 2009 Imagine a world existing parallel to our world that we practically do not perceive at all. Some scientific theories suggest that such a world exists, but nobody has ever seen it. With unprecedented accuracy, the ALPS (Any Light Particle Search) experiment is now searching for particles from such a world. In case it does exist, this would immediately support new theory models like string theory and also explain unresolved phenomena like dark matter and dark energy.
