This letter presents the first results of the mid-infrared spectrum (4.5-11.7 /zm) of the diffuse emission near to the galactic plane (I ~ 50°; |ò| < 5°) obtained by the mid-infrared spectrometer on board the Infrared Telescope in Space mission. The results clearly demonstrate the presence of unidentified infrared emission (UIR) bands at 6.2, 7.7, 8.6, and 11.3 /zm in the diffuse galactic emission. The distribution of the UIR bands correlates well with the IRAS 100 jum map, suggesting that thedoi:10.1093/pasj/48.5.l59 fatcat:wxruql3tnjfzxcrfmqhuruv42q
