How has CMB research affected modern technology

  1. Sep 30, 2013 #1
    So for my physics class, we are trying to find modern applications for different areas of research. I know the HST had a lot of help in the areas of breast cancer research and eye surgery but what are some applications for modern technology that have stemmed from cosmic microwave background radiation research? Anything that have come from advancements in the telescopes (Planck and COBE) also helps!

    “The design of cosmic microwave background experiments is a very challenging task. The greatest problems are the receivers, the telescope optics and the atmosphere. Many improved microwave amplifier technologies have been designed for microwave background applications. Some technologies used are:

    HEMT, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HEMT

    MMIC, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monolithic_Microwave_Integrated_Circuit

    SIS, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superconductor-Insulator-Superconductor

    bolometers, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolometer” [Broken]
