The cosmic infrared background (CIB) radiation is the cosmic repository for energy release throughout the history of the universe. The spatial fluctuations of the CIB resulting from galaxy clustering are expected to be at least a few percent on scales of a degree, depending on the luminosity and clustering history of the early universe. Using the all-sky data from the COBE DIRBE instrument at wavelengths 1.25-100 μm, we attempt to measure the CIB fluctuations. In the near-IR, foreground… 

DETECTION OF THE COSMIC FAR-INFRARED BACKGROUND IN AKARI DEEP FIELD SOUTH

We report new limits on the absolute brightness and spatial fluctuations of the cosmic infrared background (CIB) via the AKARI satellite. We carried out observations at 65, 90, 140, and 160 μm as a

Probing Early Structure Formation with Far-Infrared Background Correlations

The large-scale structure of high-redshift galaxies produces correlated anisotropy in the far-infrared background (FIRB). In regions of the sky where the thermal emission from Galactic dust is well

Detection of Small-Scale Fluctuations in the Near-Infrared Cosmic Infrared Background from Long-Exposure 2MASS Fields

We report first results for the cosmic infrared background (CIB) fluctuations at 1.25, 1.65, and 2.17 μm obtained from long exposures constructed from Two Micron All Sky Survey standard star fields.

RECONSTRUCTING THE NEAR-INFRARED BACKGROUND FLUCTUATIONS FROM KNOWN GALAXY POPULATIONS USING MULTIBAND MEASUREMENTS OF LUMINOSITY FUNCTIONS

We model fluctuations in the cosmic infrared background (CIB) arising from known galaxy populations using 233 measured UV, optical, and near-IR luminosity functions (LFs) from a variety of surveys

THE COSMIC NEAR-INFRARED BACKGROUND. II. FLUCTUATIONS

The near-infrared background (NIRB) is one of a few methods that can be used to observe the redshifted light from early stars at a redshift of 6 and above, and thus it is imperative to understand the

The Near-Infrared Background: Interplanetary Dust or Primordial Stars?

The intensity of the diffuse ~1-4 μm sky emission from which solar system and Galactic foregrounds have been subtracted is in excess of that expected from energy released by galaxies and stars that

CROSS-CORRELATING COSMIC INFRARED AND X-RAY BACKGROUND FLUCTUATIONS: EVIDENCE OF SIGNIFICANT BLACK HOLE POPULATIONS AMONG THE CIB SOURCES

In order to understand the nature of the sources producing the recently uncovered cosmic infrared background (CIB) fluctuations, we study cross-correlations between the fluctuations in the

Analysis of the Diffuse Near-Infrared Emission from Two-Micron All-Sky Survey Deep Integration Data: Foregrounds versus the Cosmic Infrared Background

This is one of two papers in which we report the detection of structure in the cosmic infrared background (CIB) between 1.25 and 2.2 μm through the use of data from the Two-Micron All-Sky Survey
