Physics - Colloquium

During this talk I introduce the problem of Dark Energy and the related  astronomical observations.  I will discuss the Dark Energy Survey currently in operation, with some focus on the detector technology.  Finally,  will introduce new efforts underway to develop the next generation of instruments for studying Dark Energy, including some ideas based on novel detector technologies.
