We summarize the utility of precise cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization measurements as probes of the physics of ination. We focus on the prospects for using CMB measurements 
Detecting relic gravitational waves in the CMB: A statistical bias
Analyzing the imprint of relic gravitational waves (RGWs) on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) power spectra provides a way to determine the signal of RGWs. In this Letter, we discuss a
Detection of relic gravitational waves in the CMB: prospects for CMBPol mission
Detection of relic gravitational waves, through their imprint in the cosmic microwave background radiation, is one of the most important tasks for the planned CMBPol mission. In the simplest viable
The POLARBEAR experiment
We present the design and characterization of the POLARBEAR experiment. POLARBEAR will measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) on angular scales ranging from the
Measuring Polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background with the South Pole Telescope Polarization Experiment
The South Pole Telescope Polarization experiment (SPTpol) is a camera consisting of 180 (588) pixels observing bands centered at 90 (150) GHz, installed on the South Pole Telescope in December 2012.
Generation of circular polarization of the CMB
According to the standard cosmology, near the last scattering surface, the photons scattered via Compton scattering are just linearly polarized and then the primordial circular polarization of the
Planck-suppressed operators
We show that the recent Planck limits on primordial non-Gaussianity impose strong constraints on light hidden sector elds coupled to the inaton
Design and Deployment of a Multichroic Polarimeter Array on the Atacama Cosmology Telescope
We present the design and the preliminary on-sky performance with respect to beams and passbands of a multichroic polarimeter array covering the 90 and 146 GHz cosmic microwave background bands and
Probing lepton asymmetry with 21 cm fluctuations
We investigate the issue of how accurately we can constrain the lepton number asymmetry ξν=μν/Tν in the Universe by using future observations of 21 cm line fluctuations and cosmic microwave
Primordial Magnetism in CMB B-modes
Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization B-modes induced by Faraday Rotation (FR) can provide a distinctive signature of primordial magnetic fields because of their characteristic frequency


Three Year Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Polarization Analysis
The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has mapped the entire sky in five frequency bands between 23 and 94 GHz with polarization sensitive radiometers. We present three-year full-sky maps of
Polarized Foreground from Thermal Dust Emission
In this review, we intend to present the current knowledge of the polarized emission from thermal dust in our Galaxy. We show different methods to estimate the spatial distribution statistics of this
First detection of polarization of the submillimetre diffuse galactic dust emission by Archeops
We present the first determination of the Galactic polarized emission at 353 GHz by Archeops. The data were taken during the Arctic night of February 7, 2002 after the balloon--borne instrument was
DASI Three-Year Cosmic Microwave Background Polarization Results
We present the analysis of the complete 3-year data set obtained with the Degree Angular Scale Interferometer (DASI) polarization experiment, operating from the Amundsen-Scott South Pole research
We present a statistical analysis of Galactic interstellar polarization from the largest compilation available of starlight data. The data comprises ~9300 stars, of which we have selected ~5500 for
Theoretical Models of Polarized Dust Emission from Protostellar Cores
We model the polarized thermal dust emission from protostellar cores that are assembled by supersonic turbulent flows in molecular clouds. Self-gravitating cores are selected from a three-dimensional
