A direct measurement of the extragalactic background light (EBL) can provide important constraints on the integrated cosmological history of star formation, metal and dust production, and the conversion of starlight into infrared emission by dust. In this paper we examine the cosmological implications of the recent detection of the EBL in the 125 to 5000 μm wavelength region by the Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) and Far Infrared Absolute Spectrophotometer (FIRAS) on board the…

A Tentative Detection of the Cosmic Infrared Background at 3.5 μm from COBE/DIRBE Observations
Foreground emission and scattered light from interplanetary dust (IPD) particles and emission from Galactic stellar sources are the greatest obstacles to determining the cosmic infrared background
The Role of Dust in Producing the Cosmic Infrared Background
The extragalactic background light (EBL), exclusive of the cosmic microwave background, consists of the cumulative radiative output from all energy sources in the universe since the epoch of
The Far Infrared and Submillimeter Diffuse Extragalactic Background
The cosmic infrared background (CIB) radiation was a long-sought fossil of energetic processes associated with structure formation and chemical evolution since the Big Bang. The COBE Diffuse Infrared
Clustering of the Diffuse Infrared Light from the COBE DIRBE Maps. III. Power Spectrum Analysis and Excess Isotropic Component of Fluctuations
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
Improved models for cosmic infrared background anisotropies: new constraints on the infrared galaxy population
The power spectrum of cosmic infrared background (CIB) anisotropies is sensitive to the connection between star formation and dark matter haloes over the entire cosmic star formation history. Here we
THE STELLAR CONTRIBUTION TO THE EXTRAGALACTIC BACKGROUND LIGHT AND ABSORPTION OF HIGH-ENERGY GAMMA RAYS
TeV γ-rays from distant astrophysical sources are attenuated due to electron–positron pair creation by interacting with ultraviolet/optical to infrared photons which fill the universe and are

Spectrum and Anisotropy of the Cosmic Infrared Background
If the luminosity per mass of the universe at redshifts z = 5-1000 were at least comparable to its present luminosity, then a conspicuous cosmological infrared radiation background would be produced.
Constraints on the Extragalactic Infrared Background from Gamma-Ray Observations of Markarian 501
We use the new results of the HEGRA detector on the TeV γ-ray emission from Mrk 501 to set upper limits on the energy density of the cosmic infrared background (CIRB). Contrary to previous
SOURCES OF COSMIC INFRARED-SUBMILLIMETRE BACKGROUND RADIATION
In this lecture I first review attempts to detect extragalactic background radiation in the infrared and submillimetre bands. Although such observations are exceedingly difficult, and one can
The Spectrum of the Extragalactic Far-Infrared Background from the COBE FIRAS Observations
The COBE FIRAS data contain foreground emission from interplanetary, Galactic interstellar dust and extragalactic background emission. We use three different methods to separate the various emission
On the determination of the cosmic infrared background radiation from the high-energy spectrum of extragalactic gamma-ray sources
In a recent paper Stecker, De Jager, & Salamon have suggested using the observed approximately MeV to TeV spectra of extragalactic gamma-ray sources as probes of the local density of the cosmic
Cosmic Emissivity and Background Intensity from Damped Lyman-Alpha Galaxies
We present a new method to compute the cosmic emissivity ℰν and background intensity Jν. Our method is based entirely on data from quasar absorption-line studies, namely, the comoving density of H I
