  • The study of the extragalactic background light (EBL) in the optical and near infrared has received a lot of attention in the last decade, especially near a wavelength of $\lambda\approx 3.4\operatorname{\mu m}$, with remaining tension among different techniques for estimating the background. In this paper we present a measurement of the contribution of galaxies to the EBL at $3.4\operatorname{\mu m}$ that is based on the measurement of the luminosity function (LF) in Lake et al. (2018) and the… CONTINUE READING
