CMB Anisotropy Observations 1992-present
A complete ascii table of
CMB anisotropy observations and upper limits from 1992-present can
be viewed or downloaded
here. Since you've been such a great customer, I'll
throw in a
SuperMongo script that plots all of these detections against
the output of CMBFAST at no extra charge!
(This script apparently uses Mongo commands so you'll need to
call it by typing "input dT_lcdm.sm" at a supermongo prompt.)
The full text
of the recent review article by Gawiser & Silk
is available, and
you can also download the individual full-size
color figures (including a plot of all these observations). The references
mentioned in the table are found in this article, plus the
recent publications of the BOOMERANG and MAXIMA teams.
In the table, -dlogl is log(leff/lmin) and +dlogl is log(lmax/leff) where
leff, lmin, lmax are the mean and half-power points of the instrumental
1sigcal% means 1 sigma calibration uncertainty as a percentage of the
reported dT; the upper and lower 1 sigma error bars in dT do not include
this calibration uncertainty. 4pi/Omega is the inverse of the fraction
of the full sky observed by the instrument; if a percentage appears
in that column it is the percentage error on dT due to sample variance (and
cosmic variance) reported by the authors, which is included in the
+-dT error bars. x is the first-order correction for non-Gaussianity
in the likelihood function derived by
and Knox (only available for a few observations, in uK^2).
