Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe DR5
WMAP Polarization Power Spectra (includes binned versions) Description
The TE and TB, EE, and BB power spectra are computed using a pseudo-Cl estimator for the region outside the nine year polarization mask in P and outside the analysis mask in T. The foreground-cleaned V band with uniform weighting is used for T. The combined foreground-cleaned Q and V bands are used for P. Polarization weighting uses the full Ninv weighting for l ≤ 16 and Nobs weighting for l > 16.
Unbinned TE and TB, EE, and BB power spectra are provided as a tables containing the following columns:
The diagonal elements provide an estimate of the error, but should not be used as exact error bars. The complete Fisher matrix should be used for that purpose.
Binned versions of the TE and TB power spectra is also available in separate ASCII files with the following columns:
