Predicted spectra of E- and B-modes. The blue solid curves representing B-modes labeled r=0.3 and r=0.01 correspond to amplitudes just below current limits and within reach of a satellite mission dedicated to polarization, respectively. The hatched region and the dashed curve labeled "EPIC" show the noise levels projected for two possible implementations of this mission [4]. The dashed curves labeled "WMAP" and "Planck" correspond to the statistical noise limits for these satellites after 9 years and 1 year, respectively. All noise curves are averaged over bins of width Δl = 0.3l.
