We study the anisotropies of the diffuse radiation in the mm and sub-mm spectral region.

We find that two high Galactic latitude "cosmological windows" allow us to search for cosmic background radiation (CBR) anisotropies at a level of DELTA-T/T-congruent-to 10(-6), at angular scales between approximately 0-degrees.5 and approximately 5-degrees, in the spectral interval between 2 and 9 cm-1.

Abstract

We study the anisotropies of the diffuse radiation in the mm and sub-mm spectral region. These are produced by interstellar dust emission and radio continuum emission and can contaminate the measurements of the cosmological background anisotropies. We find that two high Galactic latitude "cosmological windows" allow us to search for cosmic background radiation (CBR) anisotropies at a level of DELTA-T/T-congruent-to 10(-6), at angular scales between approximately 0-degrees.5 and approximately 5-degrees, in the spectral interval between 2 and 9 cm-1.
