The cosmic microwave background polarization is rich of cosmological information complementary to those from temperature anisotropies. Linear polarization can be decomposed uniquely in two components of opposite parities, called E and B. While E mode allows measurement of cosmological parameters in a way independent from temperature, B mode allows to detect the primordial gravitational waves produced during inflation, and thus to determine its energy scale. However, measuring CMB polarization… CONTINUE READING
