File:WMAP 3yr EE.png

Description Taken from L. Page et al. (WMAP collaboration), "Three-year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) observations: polarization analysis" figure 22 (preprint available from with caption that reads "The EE spectrum at l > 40 for all measurements of the CMB polarization. The curve is the best fit EE spectrum. Note that the y axis has only one power of l. The black boxes are the WMAP data; the triangles are the BOOMERanG data; the squares are the DASI data; the diamonds are the CBI data; and the asterisk is the CAPMAP data. The WMAP data are the QVW combination. For the first point, the cleaned value is used. For other values, the raw values are used."
