The E and B Experiment, EBEX, is a Cosmic Microwave Background polarization experiment designed to detect
or set upper limits on the signature of primordial gravity waves. Primordial gravity waves are predicted to be
produced by inflation, and a measurement of the power spectrum of these gravity waves is a measurement of
the energy scale of inflation. EBEX has sufficient sensitivity to detect or set an upper limit at 95% confidence
on the energy scale of inflation of < 1.4 × 1016 GeV. This article reviews our strategy for achieving our science
goals and discusses the implementation of the instrument.© (2008) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
