Recent measurements of cosmic ray electron energy spectra suggest that above 10 GeV there may be deviations from a single power law spectrum. There are hints (ATIC) for a bump occurring between 100 GeV and 1TeV, meaning that there might be more high energy electrons than expected. Whether these electrons are produced within pulsar magnetospheres, or due to Dark Matter annihilation or decay, this is still matter of debate. Understanding the nature of these ultra high energy particles is a… Expand

Challenges and prospects for better measurements of the CMB intensity spectrum
Spectral distortions of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) offer the possibility of probing processes which occurred during the evolution of our Universe going back up to Z$\simeq 10^7$.Expand
