Abstract (from CDS):

We present the first cosmic shear measurements obtained from the T0001 release of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Legacy Survey. The data set covers three uncorrelated patches (D1, D3 and D4) of one square degree each, observed in u*, g', r', i' and z' bands, to a depth of i'=25.5. The deep, multi-colour observations in these fields allow for several data-quality controls. The lensing signal is detected in both r' and i' bands and shows similar amplitude and slope in both filters. B-modes are found to be statistically zero at all scales. Using multi-colour information, we derived a photometric redshift for each galaxy and use this to separate the background source sample into low-z and high-z subsamples. A stronger shear signal is detected from the high-z subsample than from the low-z subsample, as expected from weak lensing tomography. While further work is needed to model the effects of errors in the photometric redshifts, this result suggests that it will be possible to obtain constraints on the growth of dark matter fluctuations with lensing wide field surveys. The combined Deep and Wide surveys give σ8=0.89±0.06 assuming the Peacock & Dodds non-linear scheme (P&D), and σ8=0.86±0.05 for the halo model and Ωm=0.3. We assumed a Cold Dark Matter model with flat geometry and have marginalized over the systematics, the Hubble constant and redshift uncertainties. Using data from the Deep survey, the 1σ upper bound for w0, the constant equation of state parameter is w0←0.8.
