Here is a list of the projects I am working on
 
 
 

Cosmic Microwave Backgound and foreground experiments

Planck_logePlanck-HFI
ESA's Planck observatory is the third space mission of its kind. Launched in May 2009, It is measuring tiny fluctuations in the CMB with unprecedented accuracy.

Clover_logeArcheops
Balloon borne version of Planck-HFI which has been flown several times from 1999 to 2002.

Clover_logeQuijote
The Q-U-I JOint TEnerife experiment aims to observe the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background on large angular scales (around 1 degree) at a number of frequencies between 11 and 30 GHz.

Clover_logeQUBIC
Ground based bolometric interferometer to measure the B modes of the polarised CMB Fluctuations

COrE logoCOrE (Cosmic Origin Explorer)
Medium Class space mission proposed to ESA.

 

Galactic and Extra-galactic experiments

Clover_logeHerschel - SPIRE
ESA space mission: 3.5m telescope with three instruments (HIFI, PACS and SPIRE). It is the only space observatory to cover a spectral range from the far infrared to sub-millimetre.

Artemis_logoArTémis
Ground based camera (200, 350 and 450 microns) for the APEX telescope led by CEA-Saclay (Fr).

FIBRE
Ground based submillimeter spectrometer for the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO)

 

Other projects

FAST_logoFAST
Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope being built in China. We are part of the collaboration developing its first receivers.
