Abstract

Axions with the energy of \(9.4\) keV emitted in the М1 transition in 83Kr nuclei in the Sun have been searched for using the resonant absorption reaction \(A + \,{{\,}^{{83}}}{\kern 1pt} {\text{Kr}} \to \,{{\,}^{{83}}}{\text{K}}{{{\text{r}}}^{ \star }} \to \,{{\,}^{{83}}}{\kern 1pt} {\text{Kr}} + \gamma ,e\) (9.4 keV). A krypton-filled proportional counter located in a low-background setup is used to detect \(\gamma \) rays and electrons. A new limit on the axion–nucleon coupling constant \(\left| {g_{{AN}}^{3} - g_{{AN}}^{0}} \right| \leqslant 8.4 \times {{10}^{{ - 7}}}\) is obtained. In the hadronic axion model, it leads to a new limit on the axion mass \({{m}_{A}} \leqslant 65\) eV (95% CL). A possibility of searching for solar axions with 57Fe-containing semiconductor crystals is described.
