The Observational Cosmology and Instrumentation group at IFCA focuses on the study of several topics related to the origin and evolution of the Universe. Our research accounts for the analysis and interpretation of astronomical data, as well as for the design and development of instrumental devices to perform the measurement of these data.
Our major research topics are:
GAUSSIANITY AND ISOTROPY OF THE COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND
COMPONENT SEPARATION OF THE MICROWAVE SKY
LARGE SCALE STRUCTURE AND SECONDARY ANISOTROPIES
SIGNAL PROCESSING AND STATISTICS
Our research on instrumentation for microwave experiments follows three different lines:
MICROWAVE (MW) RADIOMETERS
NEAR-INFRA-RED (NIR) ELECTRO-OPTICAL (EO) TECHNOLOGY FOR MW INSTRUMENTATION
CALIBRATION OF CMB EXPERIMENTS
