M. Bowden (KIPAC, Stanford University / SLAC), QUaD Collaboration
QUaD is a new Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization bolometer-array telescope. The instrument was installed at the South Pole over the 2004-05 Austral Summer and completed its first season of observations during the 2005 Austral Winter. QUaD is expected to make a high-resolution measurement of the E-mode CMB power spectrum. I will describe the observations made during this first season and the current status of the data analysis. This work is supported by the National Science Foundation (USA) and the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (UK).
