October 1, 2018: Successful 2018 season nearly finished with SPT-3G camera, 1-month until first austral flights arrive.



July 22, 2013: B-mode polarization detected with SPTpol. The B-mode polarization induced by gravitational lensing is detected in SPTpol data by first creating a template of lensing B modes then cross-correlating this template with the SPTpol B-mode data. The template is created using the measured SPTpol E-mode polarization and an estimate of the lensing potential from Herschel-SPIRE maps of the cosmic infrared background. The plots shows the result of this cross-correlation in black bars (with results from consistency tests as green and orange bars), along with the prediction for this signal using our current best-fit cosmological model as the dashed line. The grey bars are the result of a null test.

New: Jobs!



October, 2018: The SPT-3G camera has nearly completed it's 2018 observing season! Winter-overs Joshua Montgomery and Adam Jones have nearly finished a successful 2018 austral-winter observing season at the South Pole! They will continue using SPT-3G to observe the 1500 sq. deg. survey patch for another month, before being relieved by a small austral-summer crew who will perform maintenance and improvements on the telescope and camera.

  The South Pole Telescope is funded through the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy Office of Science. NSF DOE
