Nearly 5000 Distant Early-Type Galaxies in COMBO-17: A Red Sequence and Its Evolution since z ~ 1
We present the rest-frame colors and luminosities of ~25,000 mR 24 galaxies in the redshift range 0.2 < z ≤ 1.1 drawn from 0.78 deg2 of the COMBO-17 survey (Classifying Objects by Medium-Band
A catalogue of the Chandra Deep Field South with multi-colour classification and photometric redshifts from COMBO-17
We present the COMBO-17 object catalogue of the Chandra Deep Field South for public use, covering a field which is $31\farcm5$ $\times$ $30\arcmin$ in size. This catalogue lists astrometry,
CALIFA, the Calar Alto Legacy Integral Field Area survey : I. Survey presentation
The final product of galaxy evolution through cosmic time is the population of galaxies in the local universe. These galaxies are also those that can be studied in most detail, thus providing a
GEMS: The Surface Brightness and Surface Mass Density Evolution of Disk Galaxies
We combine HST imaging from the GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs) survey with photometric redshifts from COMBO-17 to explore the evolution of disk-dominated galaxies since z 1.1. The
The stellar masses of 25 000 galaxies at 0.2 ≤ z ≤ 1.0 estimated by the COMBO-17 survey
We present an analysis of stellar mass estimates for a sample of 25000 galaxies from the COMBO-17 survey over the interval $0.2 $60\%$) of massive galaxies with $M_* > 10^{11} M_{\odot}$ at all $z <
The evolution of faint AGN between z ' 1 and z ' 5 from the COMBO-17 survey
We present a determination of the optical/UV AGN luminosity function and its evolution, based on a large sample of faint (R< 24) QSOs identified in the COMBO-17 survey. Using multi-band photometry in
HE 0557–4840: Ultra-Metal-Poor and Carbon-Rich*
We report the discovery and high-resolution, high-S/N spectroscopic analysis of the ultra-metal-poor red giant HE 0557-4840, which is the third most heavy-element-deficient star currently known. It
Dry Mergers in GEMS: The Dynamical Evolution of Massive Early-Type Galaxies
We have used the 28' × 28' Hubble Space Telescope image mosaic from the GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphology and SEDs) survey in conjunction with the COMBO-17 photometric redshift survey to
The MUSE second-generation VLT instrument
Summary: The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) is a second-generation VLT panoramic integral-field spectrograph currently in manufacturing, assembly and integration phase. MUSE has a field of
GEMS: Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs
GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs) is a large-area (800 arcmin2) two-color (F606W and F850LP) imaging survey with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble Space Telescope.
