    • AbstractHow hot is the Universe today? How hot was it before? In this talk, we report on the result of the observational determination of the mean temperature of hot gas in the Universe. We find that the mean gas temperature has increased ten times over the last 8 billion years, to reach about 2 million Kelvin today. As cosmic structures form, matter density fluctuations collapse gravitationally and baryonic matter is shock-heated and thermalized. We therefore expect a connection between the mean gravitational potential energy of collapsed halos and the mean thermal energy of baryons. Our result provides quantitative verification of such a connection via cosmic shock-heating.

  • 1/27: Give a colloquium of Graduiertenkolleg 2149 on “Cosmic Birefringence: A New Probe of Dark Matter and Dark Energy” 
    • AbstractPolarised light of the cosmic microwave background is sensitive to physics violating parity symmetry under inversion of spatial coordinates. In this presentation we report on a measurement of parity violation from polarisation data of two satellite missions, WMAP and Planck. The statistical significance of the measured signal is 3.6 sigma. If confirmed with higher statistical significance in the future, it would have important implications for the elusive nature of dark matter and dark energy.
