[62.15] Measuring Polarization in the CMBR from Antarctica

J. Ruhl (UC Santa Barbara)

The cosmic microwave background radiation is expected to be slightly polarized, with variations on a variety of angular scales. Measuring this polarization will complement planned temperature-anisotropy observations. Detector technology has advanced to the point where such polarization measurements are feasible; the case for making these observations from Antarctica will be discussed.
