Our group uses millimeter-wave telescopes at the South Pole to make measurements of the Cosmic Microwave Background, relic light that was emitted 380,000 years after the Big Bang. Using sensitive observations of CMB polarization at large angular scales, we search for the signature of primordial gravitational waves that may have been generated at the origin of our universe.

We are members of the BICEP/Keck Collaboration, currently operating the BICEP3 and BICEP Array telescopes. We are also involved in design and planning for the future CMB-S4 Experiment.

The Cincinnati CMB Group is part of the University of Cincinnati Department of Physics. Our research activities are funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy Office of Science.
