Clover-measuring the CMB B-mode polarisation

Abstract:

We describe the objectives, design and predicted performance of Clover, a fully-funded, UK-led experiment to measure the B-mode polarisation of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). Three individual telescopes will operate at 97, 150 and 225 GHz, each populated by up to 256 horns. The detectors, TES bolometers, are limited by unavoidable photon noise, and coupled to an optical design which gives very low systematic errors, particularly in cross-polarisation. The telescopes will sit on three-...
