Cosmic Microwave Background

Installing one of the five Keck Receivers.

Research Description

We are interested in answering some of the biggest and most exciting questions about the nature of the Universe. What was the Universe like at the beginning of time? What physical processes drove the origin of our Universe, and how can these explain its present-day structure and composition? Through precision measurements of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), we directly explore the Universe as it was shortly after the Big Bang, and hope to solve some of most compelling questions of cosmology that are accessible to observations today.
