Planck Explanatory Supplement (Public Release 1)

01/12/2014: Due to maintenance operations in the PLAPlanck Legacy Archive, the links in the Explanatory Supplement to the products in the PLAPlanck Legacy Archive will not be operational from 12:00 on the 02/12/2014 to 12:00 on the 03/12/2014. We will try to minimize the downtime and apologize for any inconvenient this may cause to our users.

If you are new to the Explanatory Supplement we prepared a page with Questions and Answers to help you make the most efficient use of this document and the data.

Other versions of the ES: We provide a pdf version of the ES but you should be aware there are some limitations. Some figures in the online version do not appear in the pdf version and the references you can see in most pages will not appear in the pdf file.

Planck 2013 papers: A complete list of the Planck 2013 papers can be found here.
