Linear polarized fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background

Abstract

It has been recognized since the early work of Silk1 and Sachs and Wolfe2 that inhomogeneities in density, velocity fields or gravitational potential can produce small amplitude fluctuations in the intensity of the cosmic microwave background on small angular scales. Searches3 for such intensity fluctuations on scales of arc seconds to degrees have now… (More)
