Cosmic Lens All-sky Survey

(CLASS)
(radio survey aimed at gravitational lenses)

The Cosmic Lens All-sky Survey (CLASS) is a radio astronomical survey begun in the 1990s to find examples of gravitational lensing. It is a collaboration of multiple agencies, carried out using the Very Large Array (VLA).


The acronym CLASS is also used for the Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor, a more recent array of four microwave telescopes surveying CMB polarization, located at the Llano de Chajnantor Observatory on the Atacama Desert, Chile.
