We calculate numerical solutions and analytic approximations for the intermediate-type spectral distortions. Detection of a ?-type distortion (saturated comptonization) in the CMB will constrain the time of energy injection to be at a redshift 2 ? 106z2 ? 105, while a detection of a y-type distortion (minimal comptonization) will mean that there was heating of CMB at redshift z1.5 ? 104. We point out that the partially comptonized spectral distortions, generated in the redshift range 1.5… CONTINUE READING
