spacecraft, which operated from May 2009 to October 2013.
I am coordinating the effort to characterise
the polarization systematics of the Low
Frequency Instrument (LFI).
- The C-Band All Sky Survey, a survey at 5 GHz to complement the higher-frequency CMB observations by
Planck and WMAP.
- Studies of the Galactic synchrotron emission and Faraday rotation at
1.5 GHz using Arecibo
and Penticton (GMIMS), with my research student Indy Leclercq.
Galactic Synchrotron polarization, as a CMB foreground contaminant. With
my former student Zamri Zainal Abidin, I used
the 100-m Effelsberg
Radio Telescope to map polarized emission away from the Galactic plane,
in collaboration with Wolfgang and Patricia Reich and Richard Wielebinski.
- The eMerlin Legacy programme on Extragalactic Jet Physics
(No it isn't, as a matter of fact).
Schrödinger's Cat paper on-line! (also here
and here, but these
all have html errors).
