We report a measurement of the B-mode polarization power spectrum in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) using the Polarbear experiment in Chile. The faint B-mode polarization signature carries information about the universe's entire history of gravitational structure formation, and the cosmic inflation that may have occurred in the very early universe. Our measurement covers the angular multipole range 500 < ℓ < 2100 and is based on observations of an effective sky area of 25 with 3.′5…
