Abstract

It is argued that existing experiments do not preclude the existence of an axion with very small Peccei-Quinn scale, coupled preferentially to light fermions. Parameters are fixed for the 1.8 MeV particle suggested by recent heavy-ion experiments. Mechanisms for slowing down or binding the axion in a nuclear environment are suggested.
