Task Force on CMB Research (TFCR)
In May 2004 the NSF-NASA-DOE Astronomy and Astrophysics
Advisory Committee (AAAC)
and the NSF-DOE High Energy
Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP)
established a Task Force on CMB Research (TFCR) as a joint subcommittee to
advise NSF, NASA, and DOE on the future of research on the polarization of the cosmic microwave background
(CMB). The TFCR was tasked to produce a report (see below) to provide the funding agencies with a clear picture of the connected,
complementary experimental approaches to the exciting scientific questions about CMB polarization. A key
element of this report will be a technology roadmap that can contribute to the agencies' long-range planning.
The TFCR Final Report
as adopted by the AAAC and HEPAP Committees.
