    for the first time in data from SPTpol the polarization sensitive receiver installed on the SPT in January 2012 are thought to have only two sources gravitational lensing of the more conventional E mode CMB polarization and a background of gravitational waves from the epoch of cosmic inflation The signals detected by SPTpol are due to gravitational lensing and a sufficiently sensitive measurement of these signals will help us learn

  • South Pole Telescope: For the Public
    SPT is a new telescope deployed at the South Pole that is designed to study the Cosmic Microwave background Constructed between November 2006 and February 2007 the SPT is the largest telescope ever deployed at the South Pole This telescope provides astronomers a powerful new tool to explore dark energy the mysterious phenomena that may be causing the universe to accelerate We invite you to explore these pages to share

    also allowed a full accounting for the matter energy densities of the universe finding in agreement with the analysis of Type 1a supernovae observations that the universe is now dominated by some sort of dark energy that apparently is causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate More recently the WMAP satellite has produced spectacular all sky maps of the temperature anisotropy yielding a highly precise measurement of the angular power spectrum up to multipoles of l 600 corresponding to an angular scale of 20 The WMAP data especially combined with finer angular scale CMB anisotropy measurements made with ACBAR and CBI and with other probes of large scale structure have provided a high degree of confidence in the now standard cosmological model and allowed tight constraints to be placed on many of its parameters While these measurements have led to rapid progress in our understanding of the universe they have raised even more profound questions about the nature of dark energy and of the possibility of directly testing inflation and determining its energy scale Remarkably these questions can be addressed through future measurements of the CMB temperature anisotropy on fine angular scales and of the CMB polarization anisotropy on all angular scales they form the basis of the scientific case for the South Pole Telescope SPT program Finer angular scale temperature anisotropy measurements are needed to precisely measure the angular power spectrum through the damping tail Such observations will lead to better parameter constraints and in particular allow a better characterization of the underlying primordial matter power spectrum that in principle can be used to constrain inflationary models On angular scales of a few arcminutes and smaller i e multipoles exceeding 2000 the CMB anisotropy is dominated by secondary effects caused by distortions of the CMB as it passes through the universe The largest such effect is the Sunyaev Zel dovich Effect SZE in which the CMB photons are inverse Compton scattered by the hot intracluster gas of galaxy clusters The SZE is a potentially powerful probe of cosmology Perhaps its most powerful use will be to enable large area redshift independent surveys for galaxy clusters As the growth of massive clusters is critically dependent on the underlying cosmology the yields from such surveys can be used to set tight constraints on cosmological parameters and to investigate the nature of dark energy i e by determining its equation of state Measurements of the polarization of the CMB are extremely challenging but also have enormous potential for discovery The intrinsic polarization of the CMB reflects the local radiation field anisotropy specifically the local quadrupole moment of the incident radiation field at the surface of last scattering 14 billion years ago The dominant contribution is due to Doppler shifted radiation fields arising from the acoustic oscillations at the time of last scattering This causes the so called E mode polarization curl free polarization patterns on the sky and has been detected by DASI while the temperature polarization cross power spectrum TE
