Weak gravitational lensing is a powerful astronomical tool for constraining cosmological parameters that is entering its prime. Lensing occurs because gravitational fields deflect light rays and measuring this deflection through a statistic known as cosmic shear allows us to directly measure the properties of dark matter and dark energy on large scales. In principle, gravitational lensing is a clean probe of the cosmology of the Universe, as it depends on gravity alone and not on incomplete… CONTINUE READING
