Professor George Smoot's
group conducts research on the
early Universe using the
cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB)
and other astrophysical sources. These investigations are directed towards
realizing a variety of
regarding CMB. Graduate and undergraduate student and other job
opportunities, pending funding, are available in the various research
- satellite data analysis on the anisotropy and spectrum of the cosmic
microwave background and on infrared emission from Galactic and extragalactic
- a balloon-borne degree CMB anisotropy experiment.
- a satellite proposed to extend the COBE DMR work. It completed
Phase A feasibility study in May 1996, and has been selected for a mission
by ESA (European Space Agency) in July 1996.
- the Galactic Emission Mapping project. A radio survey of Galactic
- Neutrino Astrophysics
- Projects designed to detect high energy neutrinos.
/ Outreach / Visitor page
This section contains a variety of information, such as topics
related to cosmology and astrophysics, directions on how to get to the
lab, and where you might be able to apply in order to become a visiting
employee for a group here at LBNL.
The Smoot Astrophysics Group and its
are associated with several different institutions:
- LBL (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory)
- Physics Department of the
University of California, Berkeley
- CfPA (Center for
Particle Astrophysics, an NSF Center for Science & Technology)
