On the detection of Spectral Distortions in the CMB: Recombination to Reionization

Sathyanarayana Rao, Mayuri


The LCDM model of cosmology predicts inevitable, weak distortions in the spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) from that of a blackbody. However, no such deviations have been measured to date. This thesis focuses on CMB spectral distortions arising from the cosmological epochs of recombination and cosmic dawn & reionization. A detection and measurement of these CMB spectral distortions will enable a better understanding of the thermal and...[Show more]
