Cosmology, Cell Phones, and Video Games: Mapping Dark Energy with CHIME

Friday January 27, 2017
4:00 pm

 Presenter:  Keith Vanderlinde, Dunlap Institute, University of Toronto
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Among the great surprises of modern cosmology was the discovery of Dark Energy, which dominates the energy budget of the Universe and is driving the acceleration of its expansion rate. Decyphering its properties and nature will require novel measurements spanning vast swaths of the observable Universe. In this talk, I will introduce the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), an ambitious project to study Dark Energy by tracing out 4 billion years of cosmic history, using a purpose-built radio telescope at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) in B.C.’s Okanagan Valley.
 Host:  Gregory Taylor
