The hypothetical QCD axion particle is one of the best motivated dark matter candidates. In this talk I will outline the motivation for the QCD axion, and discuss how we could look for this elusive particle by searching for the new forces that it would mediate. I will describe an existing experimental setup to look for these new forces based on the technique of nuclear magnetic resonance, and show a new result that demonstrates how we can source QCD axions for the experiment using a piezoelectric crystal.
