Abstract

TabstractPDFeXpress. Due to redshift, the 21-cm signal is expected at frequencies and lt; 200 MHz for z and gt; 6. The Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signature (EDGES) measures the sky-average, or global, brightness temperature spectrum in the frequency range 50-200 MHz, with the objective of characterizing the cosmological 21-cm signal. The EDGES instruments are single-antenna, absolutely-calibrated, total-power radiometers. They conduct observations from the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory in Western Australia.
