I would like to present a new experimental proposal, called LACME,  to search for axion dark matter in the laboratory. If axions or axion-like particles are  the main component of dark matter, they will modify the transport property of electrons in medium and also the atomic spectra, which will give a new way of detecting axions or axion-like particles. Finally I will discuss a topological soliton made of axions and magnetic fields and its observational consequences in the cosmos.
