Test of Newton's law
1  GAVRILYUK 2015 look for solar axions emitted by the M1 transition of ${}^{83}\mathrm {Kr}$ (9.4 keV). The mass bound assumes ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit u}}}/{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit d}}}$ = 0.56 and $\mathit S$ = 0.5.
2  KLIMCHITSKAYA 2015 use the measurement of differential forces between a test mass and rotating source masses of ${}^{}\mathrm {Au}$ and ${}^{}\mathrm {Si}$ to constrain the force due to two-axion exchange for $1.7 \times 10^{-3}$ $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ $<$ 0.9 eV. See their Figs. 1 and 2 for mass dependent limits.
3  BEZERRA 2014 use the measurement of the thermal Casimir-Polder force between a Bose-Einstein condensate of ${}^{87}\mathrm {Rb}$ atoms and a ${}^{}\mathrm {SiO}_{2}$ plate to constrain the force mediated by exchange of two pseudoscalars for 0.1 meV $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}<$ 0.3 eV. See their Fig. 2 for the mass-dependent limit on pseudoscalar coupling to nucleons.
4  BEZERRA 2014A is analogous to BEZERRA 2014 . They use the measurement of the Casimir pressure between two ${}^{}\mathrm {Au}$-coated plates to constrain pseudoscalar coupling to nucleons for $1 \times 10^{-3}$ eV $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}<$ 15 eV. See their Figs. 1 and 2 for the mass-dependent limit.
5  BEZERRA 2014B is analogous to BEZERRA 2014 . BEZERRA 2014B use the measurement of the normal and lateral Casimir forces between sinusoidally corrugated surfaces of a sphere and a plate to constrain pseudoscalar coupling to nucleons for 1 eV $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ $<$ 20 eV. See their Figs. $1 - 3$ for mass-dependent limits.
6  BEZERRA 2014C is analogous to BEZERRA 2014 . They use the measurement of the gradient of the Casimir force between ${}^{}\mathrm {Au}$- and ${}^{}\mathrm {Ni}$-coated surfaces of a sphere and a plate to constrain pseudoscalar coupling to nucleons for $3 \times 10^{-5}$ eV $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}_{{0}}}}$ $<$ 1 eV. See their Figs. 1, 3, and 4 for the mass-dependent limits.
7  BLUM 2014 studied effects of an oscillating strong $\mathit CP$ phase induced by axion dark matter on the primordial ${}^{4}\mathrm {He}$ abundance. See their Fig. 1 for mass-dependent limits.
8  LEINSON 2014 attributes the excessive cooling rate of the neutron star in Cassiopeia A to axion emission from the superfluid core, and found C${}^{2}_{n}{{\mathit m}^{2}}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ $\simeq{}$ $5.7 \times 10^{-6}$ eV${}^{2}$, where C$_{n}$ is the effective Peccei-Quinn charge of the neutron.
9  ALESSANDRIA 2013 used the CUORE experiment to look for 14.4 keV solar axions produced from the M1 transition of thermally excited ${}^{57}\mathrm {Fe}$ nuclei in the solar core, using the axio-electric effect. The limit assumes the hadronic axion model. See their Fig. 4 for the limit on product of axion couplings to electrons and nucleons.
10  ARMENGAUD 2013 is analogous to ALESSANDRIA 2013 . The limit assumes the hadronic axion model. See their Fig. 8 for the limit on product of axion couplings to electrons and nucleons.
11  BELLI 2012 looked for solar axions emitted by the M1 transition of ${}^{7}\mathrm {Li}{}^{*}$ (478 keV) after the electron capture of ${}^{7}\mathrm {Be}$, using the resonant excitation ${}^{7}\mathrm {Li}$ in the ${}^{}\mathrm {LiF}$ crystal. The mass bound assumes ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit u}}}/{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit d}}}$ = 0.55, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit u}}}/{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit s}}}$ = 0.029, and the flavor-singlet axial vector matrix element $\mathit S$ = 0.4.
12  BELLINI 2012B looked for 5.5 MeV solar axions produced in the ${{\mathit p}}$ ${{\mathit d}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${}^{3}\mathrm {He}{{\mathit A}^{0}}$. The limit assumes the hadronic axion model. See their Figs. 4 and 5 for mass-dependent limits on products of axion couplings to photons, electrons, and nucleons.
13  DERBIN 2011 looked for solar axions emitted by the M1 transition of thermally excited ${}^{57}\mathrm {Fe}$ nuclei in the Sun, using their possible resonant capture on ${}^{57}\mathrm {Fe}$ in the laboratory. The mass bound assumes ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit u}}}/{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit d}}}$ = 0.56 and the flavor-singlet axial vector matrix element ${{\mathit S}}$ = 3${{\mathit F}}−{{\mathit D}}$ $\simeq{}$ 0.5.
14  BELLINI 2008 consider solar axions emitted in the M1 transition of ${}^{7}\mathrm {Li}{}^{*}$ (478 keV) and look for a peak at 478 keV in the energy spectra of the Counting Test Facility (CTF), a Borexino prototype. For ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ $<$ 450 keV they find mass-dependent limits on products of axion couplings to photons, electrons, and nucleons.
15  ADELBERGER 2007 use precision tests of Newton's law to constrain a force contribution from the exchange of two pseudoscalars. See their Fig. 5 for limits on the pseudoscalar coupling to nucleons, relevant for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ below about 1 meV.
