A high-redshift IRAS galaxy with huge luminosity—hidden quasar or protogalaxy?

Abstract

DURING a survey intended to measure redshifts for 1,400 galaxies identified with faint sources detected by the Infrared Astronomy Satellite, we found an emission-line galaxy at a redshift of 2.286, and with the enormous far-infrared luminosity of 3 × 1014 times that of the Sun (L \cirċ). The spectrum is very unusual, showing lines of high excitation… (More)
