Current horizon:

z=6.6

Reionization:

z 7-20

Recombination:

z 1000


What were the sources of reionization

What were the sources of reionization?

  • Not a stringent energetic requirement

  • - 13.6 eV (chemical) vs >MeV (nuclear or grav.)

  • Non-linear structures are present early in most cosmologies(*)

  • - 2-3 peaks above Jeans scale collapse at z=20-30

  • Photo-ionization natural candidate

  • - consistent with Lyman  forest at lower z

  • - stars vs quasars

  • - decaying particles require fine-tuning of , m

(*) Interesting exceptions


Extra stars or quasars are needed

What forms in these early halos

What forms in these early halos?

  • STARS: FIRST GENERATION METAL FREE

  • - massive stars with harder spectra

  • - boost in ionizing photon rate by a factor of ~ 20

  • - return to “normal” stellar pops at Z≳10-4 Z⊙

  • (Tumlinson & Shull 2001 ; Bromm, Kudritzki & Loeb 2001; Schaerer 2002)

  • SEED BLACK HOLES: PERHAPS MASSIVE (~106 M⊙ )

  • - boost by ~10 in number of ionizing photons/baryon

  • - harder spectra up to hard X-rays

  • - effects topology, IGM heating, H2 chemistry

  • - connections to quasars and remnant holes

  • [especially z~6 super-massive BHs; also gravity waves]

  • (Oh; Venkatesan & Shull; Haiman, Abel & Rees; Haiman & Menou)


Feedback processes

Feedback Processes

}

  • INTERNAL TO SOURCES

  • - UV flux unbinds gas

  • - supernova expels gas, sweeps up shells

  • - H2 chemistry (positive and negative)

  • - metals enhance cooling

  • - depends strongly on IMF

  • GLOBAL

  • - H2 chemistry (positive and negative TYPE II)

  • - photo-evaporation (TYPE Ia)

  • - photo-heating (TYPE Ib)

  • - global dispersion of metals (pop III  pop II)

  • - mechanical (SN blast waves)


First global feedback

First Global Feedback

Soft UV background:

Soft X-ray background:

this background inevitable

and it destroys molecules

this background from quasars

promotes molecule formation

H2 dissociated by 11.2-13.6 eV

photons:

~ 1 keV photons promote

free electrons  more H2

H+  H++e-+’

Haiman, Abel & Rees (2000)


Second global feedback

Second Global Feedback

PHOTO-IONIZATION HEATING:

- IGM temperature raised to ≳104K

- Gas in-fall suppressed in halos with

velocity dispersion  ≲ 50 km/s

- [or: Jeans mass increased…]

Outline of Talk

  • Theoretical Modeling of Reionization –what were the sources? –what are the key feedback processes?

  • Observational Signatures – distribution of neutral hydrogen – distribution of free electrons


Percolation is occurring at z 6 7

“Percolation” is occurring at z~6-7

looking for hydrogen

  • Spectra of z~6 quasars in SDSS

  • - Gunn-Peterson troughs at z > 6

  • - Compared to HI opacity in 5.5 ≲ z ≲ 6 sources

  • (Becker et al. 2001; Fan et al. 2002, Songaila & Cowie 2002)

  • IGM Temperature

  • - IGM inferred to be warm from z~6 Lyman  forest

  • - It would be too cold for single early reionization

  • (Hui & Haiman 2003; Zaldarriaga et al. 1997; Theuns et al. 2002)


Evolution of the ionizing background

Evolution of the Ionizing Background

Fan et al. (2002)

  • Sharp drop at z~6

  • Natural post-percolation

  • Difficult to explain otherwise

  • Similar conclusions in:

  • Lidz et al. 2002

  • Cen & McDonald 2002

  • Gnedin 2002

  • Songaila & Cowie 2002

Another piece of evidence for z r 10

Another Piece of Evidence for zr ≲ 10

Hui & Haiman (2003)

IGM quite warm at z~4

- measured T  20,000 K

- adiabatic cooling vs.

photo-ionization heating

- requires a percolation

at low redshift (z<10)

(Zaldarriaga et al. 2001; Theuns et al. 2002)

Wmap implications

WMAP implications

no ‘crisis’

  • Complex reionization history required by WMAP + SDSS

  • - significant activity at high redshift (“3” result)

  • either : metal-free stars, mini-quasars with x60 “boost”

  • or : H2 molecules form efficiently in Type II halos

  • Some cosmogonies can be ruled out

  • - dark age = test-bed of small-scale P(k)

  • - WDM (~3? keV), Mixed DM (?) (Barkana, Haiman, Ostriker)

  • - Running Index (requires x 50 boost and H2 formation)

  • or x 3000 boost (Haiman & Holder 2003)

  • Future promise

  • - WMAP is sensitive only to  (total electron column)

  • - But if ≳0.1, then future EE/TE can distinguish xe(z)

  • (Kaplinghat et al. 2002 ; Holder et al. 2003)


Future polarization measurements

Future Polarization Measurements

  • Three reionization histories with same 0.16

  • Different polarization power spectra

  • >4 in cosmic variance limit, ~3 for Planck

  • Can induce bias in  measurement (up to~0.02)

Holder (2003)

Redshift


Looking for electrons in the cmb

Looking for Electrons in the CMB

  • CMB anisotropies

  • - damping of temperature anisotropy (geometrical)

  • - boosts large-angle polarization anisotropy (geom.)

  • - small scale SZ effect (energy)(l ≳ 3000; Oh et al. 2003)

  • Talks by M. Santos

  • and M. Kamionkowsky

  • Distortions of mean spectrum

  • - Compton heating: y=1/4 u/u ~ 10-5

  • if 10-4 of baryons in BHs, with 1% into heating

  • - dust scattering with 0.3 M⊙ dust per SN: y ~ 10-5

  • - improve FIRAS/COBE limit to 10-7 …(?)

  • (Fixsen & Mather 2002)


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • LCDM cosmogony naturally accommodates reionization

  • Different populations to satisfy both SDSS QSO + WMAP

  • Either H2 formation or significant (x50) boost in efficiency

  • Future CMB observations will probe reionization history

  • Ly Emitters and 21cm will probe neutral hydrogen

  • JWST will make direct detections to z=10 and beyond
