Paper Abstract

It is discussed how to measure the radiation of the cold Universe using the transient photoresponse of space IR detectors. This approach, which is based on the theory of transients in extrinsic photoconductors, permits to substantially improve the precision of the measurements. This has been specifically confirmed by the treatment of the data of the ISOCAM space detectors. The success of the treatment increases with the increase of the quality of the detectors and their contacts.
