LSPE-SWIPE

(Large-Scale Polarization Explorer/Short Wavelength Instrument for the Polarization Explorer)
(plan for a balloon-based CMB polarization survey)

LSPE-SWIPE (for Large-Scale Polarization Explorer/Short Wavelength Instrument for the Polarization Explorer) is a planned 50 cm balloon-borne telescope to survey CMB polarization. The plan is to use transition edge sensor (TES) bolometers operating at 0.3 K, centered on three frequencies, 140 GHz, 220 GHz, and 240 GHz. The plan is to survey 20% of the sky in a 14-day flight. Plans are for a flight in late 2021 and/or early 2022.
