Next-generation cosmological experiments will considerably improve our understanding of the Univers, by providing extremely precise measurements of cosmological observables.
Observational programs like the ground-based Simons Observatory or CMB-Stage 4, together with the JAXA satellite LiteBIRD, will characterize the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies in temperature and polarization over a wide range of scales, aiming at detecting the gravitational waves generated during inflation. Galaxy surveys like Euclid (launched on July 1st, 2023), Vera Rubin Observatory and Nancy Roman Telescope will reconstruct the matter distribution in the Universe and shed light on dark matter, dark energy and the nature of gravity. I will review these observational efforts, and discuss their relevance for cosmological measurements of neutrino masses.
