B-mode

B-mode

(mōd),
A two-dimensional diagnostic ultrasound presentation of echo-producing interfaces; the intensity of the echo is represented by modulation of the brightness of the spot, and the position of the echo is determined from the angular position of the transducer and the transit time of the acoustical pulse and its echo.

B-mode

brightness modulation in diagnostic ultrasonography. Bright dots on an oscilloscope screen represent echoes, and the intensity of the brightness indicates the strength of the echo. See also A-mode, M-mode.

B-mode

(mōd)
A two-dimensional diagnostic ultrasound presentation of echo-producing interfaces in a single plane; the intensity of the echo is represented by modulation of the brightness (B) of the spot, and the position of the echo is determined from the position of the transducer and the transit time of the acoustical pulse.

Abstract: If the B-mode signal in the CMB polarization seen by the BICEP2 experiment is confirmed, it will be the first detection of the imprint of primordial gravitational wave's generated during inflation.
Astronomers had hoped the unique B-mode polarization signature from the early cosmos would allow them to effective "see" portions of the universe that are invisible to optical telescopes as gravity from denser portions of the universe tug on the polarized light, slightly deflecting its passage through the cosmos during its 13.
A detection of B-mode polarization would greatly strengthen the case for inflation: Primordial gravitational waves are the only known source.
