APEC Seminar (Astronomy - Particle Physics - Experimental Physics - Cosmology)

Speaker: Mark Devlin (U Penn)
Title: The Cosmic Microwave Background
Date: Thu, May 17, 2018, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will review how we extract cosmological parameters from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) from both temperature and polarization maps. I will then discuss results from the current generation of CMB instruments focusing on the Atacama Cosmology Telescope. Finally, I will discuss the upcoming Simons Observatory and CMB-S4 programs.
