We prove uniqueness results for a Calderón-type inverse problem for the Hodge Laplacian acting on graded forms on certain manifolds in three dimensions. In particular, we show that partial measurements of the relative-to-absolute or absolute-to-relative boundary value maps uniquely determine a zeroth-order potential. The method is based on Carleman estimates for the Hodge Laplacian with relative or absolute boundary conditions, and on the construction of complex geometrical optics solutions which reduce the Calderón-type problem to a tomography problem for 2-tensors. The arguments in this paper allow us to establish partial data results for elliptic systems that generalize the scalar results due to Kenig, Sjöstrand and Uhlmann.
