In 2008, the SPT team reported the first successful use of SZ observations to find previously unknown clusters. More recently, the team has published the first cosmological constraints from an SZ-selected sample of clusters, the first detection of the SZ power spectrum, the first millimeter-wave detection of fluctuations in the cosmic infrared background, and the discovery of a new family of high-redshift star-forming galaxies.
In the seven years I have worked on this project, I have particpated in the design of the telescope, optics, and receiver; I have designed and built a protoype SPT receiver (which was used to qualify the secondary mirror and cold optics box); and now I am one of the leaders of the data analysis effort.
