CIBER-2

Based on the success of its predecessor, CIBER-2 is designed to continue the spectro-photometric and fluctuation campaign of the EBL in the near infrared. With a 28cm Cassegrian telescope sampled by three arms using dichoic beamsplitters, CIBER2 will provide enhanced sensitivity, extensive spectral resolution and extended wavelength coverage going down into the optical.

 CIBER-2

With its 6 photometric bands and a series of linear variable filters (LVFs), CIBER2 will explore cross correlations on both sides of the Lyman break to distinguish between low and high redshift components of the EBL. Currently undergoing integration, CIBER-2 will fly on a Black Brant IX sounding rocket from White Sands Missile range in the New Mexico desert.
