QUIET (Q/U Imaging ExperimenT) was a Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization experiment deployed in the Atacama desert in northern Chile. QUIET consisted of two cameras, one operating at 40 GHz (Q-band), the other at 90 GHz (W-band). The Q-band camera was integrated and deployed by the Columbia team. Data taking began in October 2008 and was completed in June 2009. The Q-band array logged over 3000 hours of data. Data analysis is still under way.
