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.
I am chair of the physics department at the University of Richmond. In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate physics courses, I work on a variety of research projects in cosmology, the study of the origin, structure, and evolution of the Universe. University of Richmond undergraduates are involved in all aspects of this research. If you want to know more about my research, ask me! View all posts by Ted Bunn
