Clarence's interests focus on observational cosmology with a particular emphasis on developing new superconducting technology for use in new experiments. He is part of a joint Chicago/Argonne superconducting detector development collaboration which developed and built the focal plane for the SPT-3G experiment. This focal plane, with over 15,000 polarization sensitive detectors, enables the South Pole Telescope to observe 2500 square degrees with unprecedented sensitivity. SPT-3G explores the physics of inflation, dark energy, and the cosmic neutrino background.
