    Cosmic Microwave Background - Jamie Bock

Research assistantships are available in experiments designed to study the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). We are developing ground-based and balloon-borne instruments to measure the polarization of the CMB in search of a characteristic polarization patterned imparted from the time of inflation, an exponential expansion of the universe some 10^-32 s after the big bang. Instruments are currently taking data, and a new 95 GHz wide-field polarimeter is in development. For more information please contact Jamie Bock at, Tony Readhead at
