Abstract: The nature of dark matter is one of the most important open problems in
modern physics. Axions, originally introduced to resolve the strong CP
problem in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), and axion-like particles (ALPs)
are strongly motivated dark matter candidates. Two precision experiments,
using quantum sensing techniques to search for the electromagnetic and
the QCD axion couplings, have the potential to detect axion-like dark
matter in the mass range from 10^{-12} eV to 10^{-6} eV, and with
coupling strengths orders of magnitude beyond the current astrophysical
and laboratory limits.
