We measure the average temperature decrement on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) produced by voids selected in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 spectroscopic redshift galaxy catalog, spanning redshifts 0 < z < 0.44. We find an imprint amplitude between 2.6 and 2.9 μK as viewed through a compensated top-hat filter scaled to the radius of each void, we assess the statistical significance of the imprint at ∼2σ, and we make crucial use of N-body simulations to calibrate our analysis… 
The lensing and temperature imprints of voids on the cosmic microwave background.
We have searched for the signature of cosmic voids in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), in both the Planck temperature and lensing-convergence maps; voids should give decrements in both. We use
Imprint of DES superstructures on the cosmic microwave background
Small temperature anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) can be sourced by density perturbations via the late-time integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) effect. Large voids and superclusters
The Jubilee ISW Project - II. Observed and simulated imprints of voids and superclusters on the cosmic microwave background
We examine the integrated Sachs–Wolfe (ISW) imprint of voids and superclusters on the cosmic microwave background. We first study results from the Jubilee N-body simulation. From Jubilee, we obtain
The Gravitational Lensing Signatures of BOSS Voids in the Cosmic Microwave Background
We report a detection of the gravitational lensing effect of cosmic voids from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Data Release 12 seen in the Planck 2018 cosmic microwave background (CMB) lensing
The integrated Sachs–Wolfe signal from BOSS superstructures
Cosmic structures leave an imprint on the microwave background radiation through the integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect. We construct a template map of the linear signal using the SDSS-III Baryon Acoustic
On the detection of the integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect with stacked voids
The stacking of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) patches has been recently used to detect the integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect (iSW). Focusing on the locations of superstructures they identified in the
Precision cosmology with voids in the final BOSS data
We report novel cosmological constraints obtained from cosmic voids in the final BOSS DR12 dataset. They arise from the joint analysis of geometric and dynamic distortions of average void shapes
We present a simple gravitational lens model to illustrate the ease of using the embedded lensing theory when studying cosmic voids. It confirms the previously used repulsive lensing models for deep
Universe opacity and CMB
A cosmological model, in which the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is a thermal radiation of intergalactic dust instead of a relic radiation of the Big Bang, is revived and revisited. The model
Baryon effects on void statistics in the EAGLE simulation
Cosmic voids are promising tools for cosmological tests due to their sensitivity to dark energy, modified gravity and alternative cosmological scenarios. Most previous studies in the literature of


Correlation of CMB with large-scale structure. I. Integrated Sachs-Wolfe tomography and cosmological implications
We cross correlate large-scale structure (LSS) observations from a number of surveys with cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) to
Cosmological density fluctuations on 100 Mpc scales and their isw effect
We measure the matter probability distribution function (PDF) via counts in cells in a volume-limited subsample of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Luminous Red Galaxy Catalog on scales from 30 h−1 Mpc
An Imprint of Superstructures on the Microwave Background due to the Integrated Sachs-Wolfe Effect
We measure hot and cold spots on the microwave background associated with supercluster and supervoid structures identified in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey luminous red galaxy catalog. The structures
The Jubilee ISW project – I. Simulated ISW and weak lensing maps and initial power spectra results
We present initial results from the Jubilee Integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) project, which models the expected cold dark matter ISW effect in the Jubilee simulation. The simulation volume is (6 h−1
Full‐sky map of the ISW and Rees–Sciama effect from Gpc simulations
We present a new method for constructing maps of the secondary temperature fluctuations imprinted on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation by photons propagating through the evolving cosmic
The integrated Sachs-Wolfe imprint of cosmic superstructures: a problem for ΛCDM
A crucial diagnostic of the ΛCDM cosmological model is the integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) effect of large-scale structure on the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The ISW imprint of superstructures of
Cross-correlating WMAP5 with 1.5 million LRGs: a new test for the ISW effect
We present the cross-correlation of the density map of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) and the temperature fluctuation in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) as measured by the fiveyear Wilkinson
Towards accurate modelling of the integrated Sachs–Wolfe effect: the non-linear contribution
In a universe with a cosmological constant, the large-scale gravitational potential varies in time and this is, in principle, observable. Using an N-body simulation of a A cold dark matter universe,
On the signature of z ∼ 0.6 superclusters and voids in the Integrated Sachs–Wolfe effect
Through a large ensemble of Gaussian realisations and a suite of large-volume N- body simulations, we show that in a standardCDM scenario, supervoids and su- perclusters in the redshift range z 2

In the context of the study of the integrated Sachs Wolfe effect (ISW), we revisit the angular cross correlation of WMAP cosmic microwave background (CMB) data with the NRAO Very Large Array Sky
