Abstract

I will discuss electromagnetic signals generated by gravitational waves (GWs) in resonant cavity experiments.  Experiments designed for the detection of axion dark matter only need to reanalyze existing data to search for GWs in the GHz range with strains as small as h ∼ 10^{−22} − 10^{−21}. This is still far from the BBN bound on primordial sources, but it is the best direct constraint that we can currently obtain in the laboratory. To get to this result I will correct some long standing misconceptions present in the literature.
