Abstract: 

Light shining through a wall experiments can be used to make measurements of photon-WISP couplings. The first stage of the CASCADE experiment at the Cockcroft Institute of Accelerator Science and Technology is intended to be a proof-of-principle experiment utilising standard microwave technologies to make a modular, cryogenic HSP detector to take advantage of future high-power superconducting cavity tests. This talk presents the latest results of the CASCADE LSW experiment showing a peak expected exclusion of approximately 1x10-8 in the mass range from 1.96 ueV to 5.38 ueV, exceeding current limits. Near-field effects are also discussed.
