Observational Cosmology and Instrumentation

​​Observational Cosmology and Instrumentation

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.


RESEARCH TOPICS

 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
  GRAVITATIONAL LENSING
  SIGNAL PROCESSING AND STATISTICS


INSTRUMENTATION TOPICS

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
