Abstract
POLARBEAR is a Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization experiment that will search for evidence of inflationary gravitational waves and gravitational lensing in the polarization of the CMB. This proceeding presents an overview of the design of the instrument and the architecture of the focal plane, and shows some of the recent tests of detector performance and early data from the ongoing engineering run.
