Abstract

We describe a balloon-borne telescope, optimized for observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) anisotropies in the mm wavelength region, at angular scales around 10. We stress the scientific motivations for these measurements and the problematics driving the experiment design. Using large throughput bolometers cooled at 0.3K we have a sensitivity high enough to detect CMB anisotropies at level ΔT/T∼10-5 in few seconds of integration time. © 1993 Societàa Italiana di Fisica.
