For the problem of signal detection in Gaussian white noise, we obtain lower bounds for the asymptotics of moderate deviation probabilities of type I and type II errors. These asymptotics are attained on tests of the χ2 type. Using these lower bounds, we find lower bounds for nonparametric confidence estimation in the moderate deviation zone.
