Source info: This field is an isotropic blackbody photon field with temperature T = 2.73 K

Public Functions

double getPhotonDensity(double ePhoton, double z = 0.) const

returns comoving photon density [1/m^3]. multiply with (1+z^3) for physical number density.

  • ePhoton: photon energy [J]
  • z: redshift (if redshift dependent, default = 0.)

virtual double getRedshiftScaling(double z) const

returns overall comoving scaling factor (cf. CRPropa3-data/

  • z: redshift
