We use the Planck HFI channel maps to make an all sky map of μ-distortion fluctuations. Our μ-type distortion map is dominated by the y-type distortion contamination from the hot gas in the low redshift Universe and we can thus only place upper limits on the μ-type distortion fluctuations. For the amplitude of μ-type distortions on 10′ scales we get the limit on root mean square (rms) value μrms10′< 6.4× 10−6, a limit 14 times stronger than the COBE-FIRAS (95% confidence) limit on the mean of… 

Spectral distortion anisotropies from single-field inflation

Distortions of the Cosmic Microwave Background energy spectrum of the μ type are sensitive to the primordial power spectrum through the dissipation of curvature perturbations on scales k≃ 50 – 104

Extracting foreground-obscured μ-distortion anisotropies to constrain primordial non-Gaussianity

Correlations between cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature, polarization and spectral distortion anisotropies can be used as a probe of primordial non-Gaussianity. Here, we perform a

Shedding light on the small-scale crisis with CMB spectral distortions

The small-scale crisis, discrepancies between observations and N-body simulations, may imply suppressed matter fluctuations on subgalactic distance scales. Such a suppression could be caused by some

In a variety of mechanisms generating primordial black holes, each black hole is expected to form along with a surrounding underdense region that roughly compensates the black hole mass. This region

Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) distortions: a new window into the physics of inflation

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) spectrum in the frequency domain is extremely close to a perfect black-body. However, we know there must be tiny distortions of the CMB spectrum which are within
