The extragalactic background light (EBL) from the far infrared through the visible and extending into the ultraviolet is thought to be dominated by starlight, either through direct emission or through absorption and reradiation by dust. This is the most important energy range for absorbing γ-rays from distant sources such as blazars and gamma-ray bursts and producing electron-positron pairs. In previous work we presented EBL models in the optical through ultraviolet by consistently taking into… CONTINUE READING
