The E and B Experiment, EBEX, is a Cosmic Microwave Background polarization experiment designed to detector set upper limits on the signature of primordial gravity waves. Primordial gravity waves are predicted to beproduced by inflation, and a measurement of the power spectrum of these gravity waves is a measurement ofthe energy scale of inflation. EBEX has sufficient sensitivity to detect or set an upper limit at 95% confidenceon the energy scale of inflation of < 1.4 × 1016 GeV. This article reviews our strategy for achieving our sciencegoals and discusses the implementation of the instrument.
