Abstract: In this article, we describe the research on dust spectra which has been performed with the PRONAOS balloon-borne experiment, as well as other insights on dust spectral properties. Results show a clear dependence of the spectral emissivity on the temperature of the medium. The temperature itself varies a lot in both star-forming and quiet environments, so that taking into account temperature and spectral emissivity variations into dust models and templates for CMB data analysis is necessary.
