    Prospects for CMB Polarization Measurements with QUaD
    Sarah Church, Stanford University

    QUaD is a bolometric Cosmic Microwave Background polarization experiment that will be fielded at the South Pole in late 2004. It is expected to make detailed maps of polarization and to determine the power spectrum of both E and B-mode polarization. I will discuss the design of the experiment and preview its expected contribution to the field.
