The Cosmic Infrared Background: Measurements and Implications

  title={The Cosmic Infrared Background: Measurements and Implications},
  author={Michael G. Hauser and Eli Dwek},
The cosmic infrared background records much of the radiant energy released by processes of structure formation that have occurred since the decoupling of matter and radiation following the Big Bang. In the past few years, data from the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) mission provided the first measurements of this background, with additional constraints coming from studies of the attenuation of TeV γ-rays. At the same time there has been rapid progress in resolving a significant fraction of… CONTINUE READING
