​Recent theoretical advances show that the parameter space of well-motivated dark matter candidates is much larger than previously thought. I will discuss the nature of these very light dark matter fields and the physical effects it would produce. These effects suggest new techniques are needed to detect this class of dark matter. Promising technologies range from torsion balances to atomic-clocks, co-magnetometers and resonant-cavities.
