EBEX

(E and B Experiment)
(balloon-based CMB polarization survey)

EBEX (for E and B Experiment) was a 1.5 m balloon-borne radio telescope that surveyed CMB polarization in 2012/2013 aiming to sense polarization modes (E modes and B modes). It used transition edge sensor bolometers operating at 0.25K, centered on three frequencies, 150 GHz, 250 GHz, and 410 GHz.
