We report on the cosmological parameters derived from observations with the Cosmic Background Imager (CBI), covering 40 deg2 and the multipole range 300 ≲ l ≲ 3500. The angular scales probed by the CBI correspond to structures that cover the mass range from 1014 to 1017 M☉, and the observations reveal, for the first time, the seeds that gave rise to clusters of galaxies. These unique, high-resolution observations also show damping in the power spectrum to l ~ 2000, which we interpret as being… 

Extended Mosaic Observations with the Cosmic Background Imager

Two years of microwave background observations with the Cosmic Background Imager (CBI) have been combined to give a sensitive, high-resolution angular power spectrum over the range 400 < l < 3500.

The case is strong that cosmic microwave background (CMB) and large scale structure (LSS) observations can be combined to determine the theory of structure formation and the cosmological parameters that define it and the rosy forecasts of angular power spectra and parameter estimates from future balloon and satellite experiments are reviewed to show where cosmic parameter determination can go with CMB information alone.
