QUBIC paper submitted

For quite a while now, I’ve been part of a collaboration working on the development of QUBIC, a new kind of instrument for measuring the polarization of the microwave background.  For those who want details, we’ve written a paper describing the current status and prospects of the project.  It’s posted on the arxiv, and it’s been submitted for publication in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.  Enjoy.
