Abstract

Characterizing the diffuse Galactic synchrotron emission (DGSE) at arcminute angular scales is needed to remove this foregrounds in cosmological 21-cm measurements. Here, we present the angular power spectrum (C-l) measurement of the diffuse Galactic synchrotron emission using two fields observed by the TIFR GMRT Sky Survey (TGSS). We apply 2D Tapered Gridded Estimator (TGE) to estimate the C-l from the visibilities. We find that the residual data after subtracting the point sources is likely dominated by the diffuse Galactic synchrotron radiation across the angular multipole range 240 <= l less than or similar to 500. We fit a power law to the measured C-l over this l range. We find that the slopes in both fields are consistent with earlier measurements. For the second field, however, we interpret the measured C-l as an upper limit for the DGSE as there is an indication of a significant residual point source contribution.
