The axion is a hypothetical particle arising from the Pecce-Quinn solution to the Strong CP problem, and an excellent candidate for dark matter. The Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) is an experiment that searches for axions as a dark matter with a resonant cavity under a strong superconducting magnetic field. In previous operations, ADMX achieved sensitivity to the GUT-inspired DFSZ axion model between 2.7-3.3 micro eV with yocto Watt level background using a quantum amplifier and dilution refrigerator. The latest run has been in data-taking since 2020. In this run, we have improved our blind axion signal injection, improved our operating efficiency, and have new methods to distinguish true axion signals from the background. I will discuss these advances as well as the current data-taking status.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
