The use of X-ray astronomy for fundamental physics has been seen in two areas; dark matter through the 3.5 keV line, and in searches for axion-like particles. In advance of satellite technological leaps, this meeting brought together astronomy and particle physics communities with a focus on the ability of existing and future X-ray observatories to search for and constrain fundamental physics. It explored the opportunities open to astronomers to probe fundamental physics with both existing archival data and also with future satellites such as ATHENA.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
