Upper Limit of Axion-Photon Coupling on the Galaxy Cluster Modulation

My research project aims to investigate the upper limit of axion-photon coupling from galaxy cluster modulation. The goal is to use simulations to further push the limit of axion-photon coupling and get closer to the theoretical strength of axion-photon coupling, which would verify the existence of axion-like particles. This is essential in the investigation of particle physics and would solve the strong CP problem.
