Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST) has extended its search for solar axions by using ^{3}He as a buffer gas. At T=1.8  K this allows for larger pressure settings and hence sensitivity to higher axion masses than our previous measurements with ^{4}He. With about 1 h of data taking at each of 252 different pressure settings we have scanned the axion mass range 0.39  eV≲m_{a}≲0.64  eV. From the absence of excess x rays when the magnet was pointing to the Sun we set a typical upper limit on the axion-photon coupling of g_{aγ}≲2.3×10^{-10}  GeV^{-1} at 95% C.L., the exact value depending on the pressure setting. Kim-Shifman-Vainshtein-Zakharov axions are excluded at the upper end of our mass range, the first time ever for any solar axion search. In the future we will extend our search to m_{a}≲1.15  eV, comfortably overlapping with cosmological hot dark matter bounds.
