Abstract

BICEP is a small-aperture polarimeter which began observing the CMB from South Pole in January 2006. BICEP's 25 cm refracting telescope feeds an array of 49 polarization-sensitive bolometer pairs operating at 100 and 150 GHz. A three-axis mount provides azimuth-scanning modulation, elevation coverage from 45 degrees to zenith, and boresight rotation of the entire instrument for polarization systematic error control. We report on the first winter observations of the CMB and Galaxy at degree angular scales.
