AbstractWe discuss the possibility of using fast radio bursts (FRBs)-if cosmological-as a viable cosmic probe. We find that the contribution of the host galaxies to the detected dispersion measures can be inapparent for the FRBs that are not from galaxy centers or star-forming regions. The inhomogeneity of the intergalactic medium (IGM), however, causes significant deviation of the dispersion measure from that predicted in the simplified homogeneous IGM model for an individual event. Fortunately, with sufficient FRBs along different sightlines but within a very narrow redshift interval (e. g., Delta z similar to 0.05), the mean obtained from averaging observed dispersion measures does not suffer such a problem and hence may be used as a cosmic probe. We show that in the optimistic case (e. g., about 20 FRBs in each Delta z have been measured; the most distant FRBs were at redshift >= 3; the host galaxies and the FRB sources contribute little to the detected dispersion measures) and with all the uncertainties (i.e., the inhomogeneity of the IGM, the contribution and uncertainty of host galaxies, and the evolution and error of f(IGM)) considered, FRBs could help constrain the equation of state of dark energy.
