International scientists have discovered some delicate characteristics in the background polarization of cosmic microwaves that they believe will assist them in constructing a huge model of the universe which will be used to measure neutron masses with a view to unlocking some of the secrets surrounding energy and dark matter.

The publishing by team leader Adrian Lee, a physicist at UC Berkley, of a paper entitled POLARBEAR consortium in this week’s Astrophysical Journal, seeks to explain how a “B-mode” was successfully isolated by gravitational lensing during polarization of background radiation supporting cosmic microwa...
