Models of the Primordial Standard Clock
Oscillating massive fields in the primordial universe can be used as Standard Clocks. The ticks of these oscillations induce features in the density perturbations, which directly record the timeExpand
Standard Clock in primordial density perturbations and cosmic microwave background
Abstract Standard Clocks in the primordial epoch leave a special type of features in the primordial perturbations, which can be used to directly measure the scale factor of the primordial universe asExpand
Searching for standard clocks in the primordial universe
Classically oscillating massive fields can be used as "standard clocks" in the primordial universe. They generate features in primordial density perturbations that directly record the scale factorExpand
POLARBEAR-2: an instrument for CMB polarization measurements
POLARBEAR-2 (PB-2) is a cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization experiment that will be located in the Atacama highland in Chile at an altitude of 5200 m. Its science goals are to measure theExpand
The Future of Primordial Features with 21 cm Tomography
Detecting a deviation from a featureless primordial power spectrum of fluctuations would give profound insight into the physics of the primordial Universe. Depending on their nature, primordialExpand
The Simons Observatory: science goals and forecasts
The Simons Observatory (SO) is a new cosmic microwave background experiment being built on Cerro Toco in Chile, due to begin observations in the early 2020s. We describe the scientific goals of theExpand
Wiggly whipped inflation
Motivated by BICEP2 results on the CMB polarization B-mode which imply primordial gravitational waves are produced when the Universe has the expansion rate of about H ≈ 10{sup 14} GeV, and byExpand
Constraints on inflation with LSS surveys: features in the primordial power spectrum
We analyse the efficiency of future large scale structure surveys to unveil the presence of scale dependent features in the primordial spectrum—resulting from cosmic inflation—imprinted in theExpand
Primordial power spectrum from Planck
Using modified Richardson-Lucy algorithm we reconstruct the primordial power spectrum (PPS) from Planck Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) temperature anisotropy data. In our analysis we use differentExpand
