Cosmology with CMB spectral distortions
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 29 November 2016
from 13:15 to 14:30
at FA32
Speaker : Jens Chluba (Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics)
Abstract : The cosmic microwave background (CMB) has proven to be an amazing source or information about the Universe we live in. Beyond any doubt, in the next decades studies of the CMB polarization anisotropies and the CMB energy spectrum will reveal many exciting new pieces to the puzzle. I will give a broad-brush overview of the next steps in cosmology with the CMB, in particular highlighting the immense potential of studies of the CMB spectral distortions -- tiny deviations of the CMB energy spectrum from that of a perfect blackbody -- and its complementarity with CMB anisotropies.
