Inflation Probe Science Interest Group


The goal of the Inflation Probe Science Interest Group (IPSIG) is to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to a future Inflation Probe mission. Specifically, the IPSIG will

  • Review and update mission science goals following current developments in the field (e.g., Planck, sub-orbital measurements),
  • Review and update information about and requirements on potential foreground contaminants and their removal,
  • Review and update requirements on and developments in control of systematic errors,
  • Assess necessary technology developments and prioritize areas for increased technical emphasis.

The IPSIG is open to all members of the community.

If you are interested in contributing to the work of the IPSIG, please subscribe using the link below.

For other inquiries, e-mail co-chairs Kevin Huffenberger at khuffenberger@fsu.edu, Graça Rocha at graca.m.rocha@jpl.nasa.gov, and Abigail Vieregg at avieregg@kicp.uchicago.edu.

  • IPSIG White Paper [PDF]
    The IPSIG is pleased to submit a White Paper that summarizes the current situation with B-mode measurements and provides our perspective for progress over the next several years. This white paper benefited from contributions by many within the CMB community both in the US and abroad. It has been discussed in two open telecons, undergone revisions to reflect concerns and inputs, and iterated upon by e-mails several times. It represents the outcome of a community-wide open, collaborative process.
