QUIJOTE Consortium meeting 2017

A QUIJOTE Consortium status meeting will take place at IFCA, Santander, on June 12 - 13 2017.

LIGO observes gravitational waves from colliding black holes

LIGO Opens New Window on the Universe with Observation of Gravitational Waves from Colliding Black Holes. For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.

QUIJOTE Consortium meeting 2016

First pixels of the 30 GHz instruments

The first pixels of the QUIJOTE 30 GHz instrument have been manufactured and are being integrated in the cryostat. First light is expected for March 2015.

Fundamental Cosmology 2015

A new meeting  on "Fundamental Cosmology" will take place in Santander, June 17-19 2015, partially funded by EPI.

New constraints on the polarization of the Anomalous Microwave Emission from QUIJOTE

In this article we present an analysis of the Anomalous Microwave Emission (AME) towards the region G159.6-18.5, located in the Perseus molecular complex. This is one of the most studied AME regions in the sky. The new QUIJOTE data at 10-20 GHz allow us to confirm the downturn of the AME spectrum at frequencies below 20 GHz, first discovered in this region in previous data from the COSMOSOMAS experiment.

Planck 2015 Results

New maps from ESA’s Planck satellite uncover the ‘polarised’ light from the early Universe across the entire sky, revealing that the first stars formed much later than previously thought.
