Abstract I describe here the new C osmic A nisotropy P olarization MAP er (CAPMAP) instrument, which performed its first season of observing between February and April 2003 from the Crawford Hill 7-m antenna in NJ. CAPMAP is based on the design for the PIQUE instrument, but has better sensitivity and superior angular resolution.

A Measurement of the temperature and polarization anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background radiation
We describe the design and performance of the Boomerang experiment, and report on measurements of the temperature and polarization anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) obtained
CMB lensing forecasts for constraining the primordial perturbations: adding to the CMB temperature and polarization information
We forecast how current ({\planck}) and future ({\prism}) cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiments constrain the adiabatic mode and its admixtures with primordial isocurvature modes, using
Optimisation of the Population Monte Carlo algorithm: Application to constraining isocurvature models with cosmic microwave background data
We optimise the parameters of the Population Monte Carlo algorithm using numerical simulations. The optimisation is based on an efficiency statistic related to the number of samples evaluated prior

A ground-based polarimeter, PIQUE, operating at 90 GHz has set a new limit on the magnitude of any polarized anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background. The combination of the scan strategy and
