History of Hydrogen Reionization in the Cold Dark Matter Model

Onken, Christopher; Miralda-Escude, Jordi


We calculate the reionization history in CDM (cold dark matter) models. The epoch of the end of reionization and the Thomson scattering optical depth to the cosmic microwave background depend on the power spectrum amplitude on small scales and on the ionizing photon emissivity per unit mass in collapsed halos. We calibrate the emissivity to reproduce the measured ionizing background intensity at z = 4. Models in which all CDM halos have either a constant emissivity or a constant energy emitted...[Show more]
