Welcome to the UCSB Experimental Cosmology Group! We are an experimental astrophysics group primarily focused on studies of the early universe and astrophysical applications of directed energy.
Currently active projects
|Planck||ESA/NASA mission to study CMB anisotropy|
|COFE||Balloon-borne CMB foregrounds experiment|
|B-Machine||Ground-based CMB polarization|
|TOSS||Transient Optical Sky Survey|
|DE-STAR||Directed energy system to deflect asteroids and comets|
|DEEP-IN||Directed energy system for spacecraft propulsion|
|SETI||Search for advanced extraterrestrial intelligence|
We also have a very active education and outreach program.
