Product Name
Atacama B-Mode Search (ABS) data


These are the final power spectra from the ABS experiment. The files contain spectra created from cross-correlations of 82 maps (after application of the mask) created from subsets of the full data set, as described in Kusaka et al. The power spectra have had the transfer and window functions applied.

In addition to ABS auto-spectra and error bars, the files contain cross-power spectra with Planck 143 GHz data, as well as Planck auto-spectra and error bars. Planck has been "re-observed" with the ABS scan strategy; however there is not much difference in the spectra if one had used the Planck maps without re-observing. These spectra are plotted in Figures 5 and 6 of Kusaka, et al.
