Abstract: ClOVER is a multi-frequency experiment optimised to measurethe Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization, inparticular the B-mode component. ClOVER comprises two instruments observing respectively at 97 GHz and 150/225 GHz.The focal plane of both instruments consists of an array ofcorrugated feed-horns coupled to TES detectors cooled at 100mK. The primary science goal of ClOVER is to be sensitive togravitational waves down to r ~ 0.03 (at 3σ)in two years of operations. Copyright 2008 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
