Super-Sensors measure signature of inflationary universe.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
May 7, 2009 Built at NIST, super-sensitive microwave detectors may help scientists find out what happened in first trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second after Big Bang. Experiment will use large array of NIST sensors to look for subtle fingerprints in cosmic microwave background from primordial gravitational waves. If found, waves would be clearest evidence yet in support of "inflation theory," which suggests that all observable universe expanded rapidly from subatomic volume.
