Abstract

This chapter reviews our understanding of the interplanetary dust, from its optical and thermal properties. The interplanetary dust cloud, although of extremely low optical thickness, is indeed visible through the faint and evanescent glow of the zodiacal light. Two types of physical processes playa role in the emission of light by the interplanetary dust cloud: the scattering of solar light by dust particles, prevailing in the visible domain, and the thermal radiation, prevailing in the infrared domain.
