Abstract

We discuss the implications of a PIXIE-like experiment, which would measure $\mu$-type spectral distortions of the CMB at a level of $\sigma_{\mu}=(1/n)\times 10^{-8}$, with $n\geq1$ representing an improved sensitivity (e.g. $n=10$ corresponds to PRISM). Using Planck data and considering the six-parameter $\Lambda$CDM model, we compute the posterior for $\mu_8\equiv\mu\times 10^{8}$
