The Lyman-Continuum Fluxes and Stellar Parameters of O and Early B-Type Stars
Using the results of the most recent stellar atmosphere models applied to a sample of hot stars, we construct calibrations of effective temperature (T(sub eff)), and gravity (log(sub g)) with aExpand
A Composite Extreme-Ultraviolet QSO Spectrum from FUSE
The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) has surveyed a large sample (>100) of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the low-redshift universe (z 0.33 formed from archival Hubble Space TelescopeExpand
What Is the Total Deuterium Abundance in the Local Galactic Disk
Analyses of spectra obtained with the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) satellite, together with spectra from the Copernicus and interstellar medium absorption profile spectrographExpand
A Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer Survey of Interstellar Molecular Hydrogen in Translucent Clouds
We report the first ensemble results from the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer survey of molecular hydrogen in lines of sight with AV e1 mag. We have developed techniques for fitting computedExpand
We assess the probable redshift (z{sub rei} Almost-Equal-To 7) for full reionization of the intergalactic medium (IGM) using a prescription for the comoving star formation rate (SFR) densityExpand
Highly Ionized High-Velocity Gas in the Vicinity of the Galaxy
We report the results of a FUSE study of high-velocity O VI absorption along complete sight lines through the Galactic halo in directions toward 100 extragalactic objects and two halo stars. TheExpand
HST-COS Observations of AGNs. I. Ultraviolet Composite Spectra of the Ionizing Continuum and Emission Lines
The ionizing fluxes from quasars and other active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are critical for interpreting the emission-line spectra of AGNs and for photoionization and heating of the intergalacticExpand
Hubble/COS Observations of the Lyα Forest Toward the BL Lac Object 1ES 1553+113
We present new moderate-resolution, far-ultraviolet spectra from the Hubble Space Telescope/Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (HST/COS) of the BL Lac object 1ES 1553+113 covering the wavelength range 1135Expand
The Baryon Census in a Multiphase Intergalactic Medium: 30% of the Baryons May Still Be Missing
Although galaxies, groups, and clusters contain {approx}10% of the baryons, many more reside in the photoionized and shocked-heated intergalactic medium (IGM) and in the circumgalactic medium (CGM).Expand
A Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer Survey of Interstellar Molecular Hydrogen in the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds
We describe a moderate-resolution Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) survey of H2 along 70 sight lines to the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds, using hot stars as background sources. FUSEExpand
