AbstractThe use of time-delay gravitational lenses to examine the cosmological expansion introduces a new standard ruler with which to test theoretical models. The sample suitable for this kind of work now includes 12 lens systems, which have thus far been used solely for optimizing the parameters of ACDM. In this paper, we broaden the base of support for this new, important cosmic probe by using these observations to carry out a one-on-one comparison between competing models. The currently available sample indicates a likelihood of similar to 70%-80% that the R-h = ct universe is the correct cosmology versus similar to 20%-30% for the standard model. This possibly interesting result reinforces the need to greatly expand the sample of time-delay lenses, e.g., with the successful implementation of the Dark Energy Survey, the VST ATLAS survey, and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. In anticipation of a greatly expanded catalog of time-delay lenses identified with these surveys, we have produced synthetic samples to estimate how large they would have to be in order to rule out either model at a similar to 99.7% confidence level. We find that if the real cosmology is ACDM, a sample of similar to 150 time-delay lenses would be sufficient to rule out R-h = ct at this level of accuracy, while similar to 1000 time-delay lenses would be required to rule out ACDM if the real universe is instead R-h = ct. This difference in required sample size reflects the greater number of free parameters available to fit the data with ACDM.
