Cosmic infrared background from Population III stars and its effect on spectra of high - z gamma - ray bursts

Abstract

We discuss the contribution of Population III stars to the near-IR (NIR) cosmic infrared background (CIB) and its effect on spectra of high-z high-energy gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and other sources. It is shown that if Population III were massive stars, the claimed NIR CIB excess will be reproduced if only ∼ 4 ± 2% of all baryons went through these stars… (More)
