The primary aim of CMBeam is to develop advanced algorithms, measurement systems, and methodologies that are critical to the design and calibration of next-generation telescopes used to study the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Our efforts include the construction a state-of-the-art cryogenic holography facility for the purposes of testing optical systems of current and future experiments.

These efforts can be developed in the context of existing CMB experiments that group members are participating in, including but not limited to the Simons Observatory, the Taurus balloon-borne experiment, and LiteBIRD.
