Profile: Karl Young

I'm working with Shaul Hanany on EBEX, a balloon-borne CMB polarimeter that successfully completed its first data gathering flight in December 2012. Measurements of the CMB polarization anisotropy probe the inflationary epoch and improve constraints on several cosmological parameters. I'm working on new focal plane and lens designs that will increases EBEX's sensitivity in preparation for another flight in 2016.
