摘要Axionlike particles (ALPs) are one promising type of dark matter candidate particle that may generate detectable effects on gamma-ray spectra other than the canonical weakly interacting massive particles. In this work we search for such oscillation effects in the spectra of supernova remnants caused by the photon-ALP conversion, using the Fermi Large Area Telescope data. Three bright supernova remnants, IC443, W44, and W51C, are analyzed. The inclusion of photon-ALP oscillations yields an improved fit to the gamma-ray spectrum of IC443, which gives a statistical significance of 4.2 sigma in favor of such spectral oscillation. However, the best-fit parameters of ALPs (m(a) = 6.6 neV, g(a gamma) = 13.4 x 10(-11) GeV-1) are in tension with the upper bound (g(a gamma) < 6.6 x 10(-11) GeV-1) set by the CAST experiment. It is difficult to explain the results using the systematic uncertainties of the flux measurements. We speculate that the "irregularity" displayed in the spectrum of IC443 may be due to the superposition of the emission from different parts of the remnant.
