Temperature vs. Redshift

  1. Jul 1, 2010 #1
    I was just curious as to if there are any graphs or data available to see a more detailed outline of the temperature vs. redshift or temperature vs. time available in any published papers, books, or even online.

    How would you make such a definitive measurement in a distant galaxy?

    See http://arxiv.org/abs/0909.2815" [Broken] and references therein. But I didn't find graphs.

    Thanks for the replies, I was thinking more in general between the era of recombination & reionization (roughly redshifts between z~1500 & z~10, but more concerned about recombination). Although such measurements would be difficult, I'd think it would be strange not to have any theoretical models, that even briefly outline this.

    We do know the temperature of the surface of last scattering - about 3000K.
