New Insights into Cosmic Reionization

  • 00:53:53


The epoch of reionization, when intergalactic hydrogen is ionized by photons from stars or other luminous sources, is one of the frontiers of observational cosmology, the landmark event where structure formation touched every baryon in the Universe. I will describe recent advances toward understanding its end phases, including the observed galaxy populations and the intergalactic medium just after reionization completes, and recent improvements in our understanding of reionization as a phase transition.
