Abstract (from CDS):

The polarized thermal emission from diffuse Galactic dust is the main foreground present in measurements of the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) at frequencies above 100GHz. In this paper we exploit the uniqueness of the HFI polarization data from 100 to 353GHz to measure the polarized dust angular power spectra ClEE and ClBB over the multipole range 40<l<600 well away from the Galactic plane. These measurements will bring new insights into interstellar dust physics and allow a precise determination of the level of contamination for CMB polarization experiments. Despite the non-Gaussian and anisotropic nature of Galactic dust, we show that general statistical properties of the emission can be characterized accurately over large fractions of the sky using angular power spectra. The polarization power spectra of the dust are well described by power laws in multipole, Cl∝lα, with exponents αEE,BB=-2.42±0.02. The amplitudes of the polarization power spectra vary with the average brightness in a way similar to the intensity power spectra. The frequency dependence of the dust polarization spectra is consistent with modified blackbody emission with βd=1.59 and Td=19.6K down to the lowest HFI frequencies. We find a systematic difference between the amplitudes of the Galactic B- and E-modes, ClBB/ClEE=0.5. We verify that these general properties are preserved towards high Galactic latitudes with low dust column densities. We show that even in the faintest dust-emitting regions there are no ``clean'' windows in the sky where primordial CMB B-mode polarization measurements could be made without subtraction of foreground emission. Finally, we investigate the level of dust polarization in the specific field recently targeted by the BICEP2 experiment. Extrapolation of the 353GHz data to 150GHz gives a dust power DlBB=l(l+1)ClBB/(2π) of 1.32x10–2µKCMB2 over the multipole range of the primordial recombination bump (40<l<120); the statistical uncertainty is ±0.29x10–2µKCMB2 and there is an additional uncertainty (+0.28,-0.24)x10–2µKCMB2 from the extrapolation. This level is the same magnitude as reported by BICEP2 over this l range, which highlights the need for assessment of the polarized dust signal even in the cleanest windows of the sky.
