The Next Generation Cosmic Microwave Background Measurements and What We Hope to Learn About the Early Universe
Dr. Philip Lubin, UCSB
The next generation of CMB measurements promises to greatly
knowledge of the CMB angular power spectrum. This should enable us to
determine many of the cosmological parameters that define our universe such
as the overall mass and baryon density, if there is a significant vacuum
energy component, the Hubble parameter, spectral tilt and reionization
history, among others. Whether nature is kind to us or whether foreground
contamination and systematics prevent the full realization of these goals
remains to be seen.
