A fundamental tool to study the history of our Universe and its origin is the detection of the cosmic microwave radiation, the oldest light in our universe that fills the space we live in an almost perfectly homogeneous way. Studying the deviations from homogeneity of such radiation can give important information about how the universe developed and reached the present state.
Paolo de Bernadis is delivering a colloquium - Observing the Early Universe.
Paolo de Bernardis is professor of Astrophysics at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and a leading figure in the development of high precision experiments aiming to detect the irregularities in the cosmic microwave radiation, like Boomerang or the more recent Planck which has allowed this study with unprecedented precision.
