CMB Astrophysics Research Program

UC Berkeley - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory


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 science goals regarding CMB. Graduate and undergraduate student and other job opportunities, pending funding, are available in the various research projects.


satellite data analysis on the anisotropy and spectrum of the cosmic microwave background and on infrared emission from Galactic and extragalactic sources.

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 emission.

Neutrino Astrophysics
Projects designed to detect high energy neutrinos.
