Maryland Shared Open Access Repository

MD-SOAR is a shared digital repository platform for eleven colleges and universities in Maryland. It is currently funded by the University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) Library Consortium (usmai.org) and other participating partner institutions. MD-SOAR is jointly governed by all participating libraries, who have agreed to share policies and practices that are necessary and appropriate for the shared platform. Within this broad framework, each library provides customized repository services and collections that meet local institutional needs. Please follow the links below to learn more about each library's repository services and collections.

  • Modeling and characterization of the SPIDER half-wave plate 

    Bryan, Sean A.; Ade, Peter A. R.; Amiri, Mandana; Benton, Steve; Helson, Kyle; et al (SPIE, 2010-07-15)
    Spider is a balloon-borne array of six telescopes that will observe the Cosmic Microwave Background. The 2624 antenna-coupled bolometers in the instrument will make a polarization map of the CMB with approximately one-half ...
  • EBEX, THE E AND B EXPERIMENT 

    DIDIER, JOY; ABOOBAKER, ASAD M.; ADE, PETER; AUBIN, FRANQOIS; BACCIGALUPI, CARLO; Helson, Kyle; et al (INSPIRE, 2014)
    The E and B experiment (EBEX) is a balloon-borne telescope designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation as well as that from Galactic dust. The instrument is equipped with a 1.5 meter ...
  • EBEX: a balloon-borne CMB polarization experiment 

    Reichborn-Kjennerud, Britt; Aboobaker, Asad M.; Ade, Peter; Aubin, François; Helson, Kyle; et al (SPIE, 2010-07-15)
    EBEX is a NASA-funded balloon-borne experiment designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Observations will be made using 1432 transition edge sensor (TES) bolometric detectors read out ...
  • The performance of the bolometer array and readout system during the 2012/2013 flight of the E and B experiment (EBEX) 

    MacDermid, Kevin; Aboobaker, Asad M.; Ade, Peter; Aubin, François; Helson, Kyle; et al (SPIE, 2014-07-23)
    EBEX is a balloon-borne telescope designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation. During its eleven day science flight in the Austral Summer of 2012, it operated 955 spider-web transition ...
  • A high-resolution pointing system for fast scanning platforms: The EBEX example 

    Didier, Joy; Chapman, Daniel; Aboobaker, Asad M.; Araujo, Derek; Grainger, Will; Hanany, Shaul; Helson, Kyle; Hillbrand, Seth; Korotkov, Andrei; Limon, Michele; Miller, Amber; Reichborn-Kjennerud, Britt; Sagiv, Ilan; Tucker, Greg; Vinokurov, Yuri (IEEE, 2015-06-08)
    The E and B experiment (EBEX) is a balloon-borne telescope designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background with 8' resolution employing a gondola scanning with speeds of order degree per second. In ...
