We present Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) continuum observations of a sample of nine star-forming galaxies at redshifts 1.47 and 2.23 selected from the High-z Emission Line Survey (HiZELS). Four galaxies in our sample are detected at high significance by ALMA at a resolution of 0${_{.}^{\prime\prime}}$25 at rest-frame 355 μm. Together with the previously observed H α emission, from adaptive optics-assisted integral-field-unit spectroscopy (∼0${_{.}^{\prime\prime}}$15…

Resolving a dusty, star-forming SHiZELS galaxy at z = 2.2 with HST, ALMA, and SINFONI on kiloparsec scales

We present ∼ 0.15′′ spatial resolution imaging of SHiZELS-14, a massive (M∗ ∼ 1011M ), dusty, star-forming galaxy at z = 2.24. Our rest-frame ∼ 1kpc-scale, matched-resolution data comprise four

The MOSFIRE Deep Evolution Field Survey: Implications of the Lack of Evolution in the Dust Attenuation–Mass Relation to z ∼ 2

We investigate the relationship between dust attenuation and stellar mass (M *) in star-forming galaxies over cosmic time. For this analysis, we compare measurements from the MOSFIRE Deep Evolution

The Observed Cosmic Star Formation Rate Density Has an Evolution that Resembles a Γ(a, bt) Distribution and Can Be Described Successfully by Only Two Parameters

A debate is emerging regarding the recent inconsistent results of different studies for the cosmic star formation rate density (CSFRD) at high-z. We employ UV and IR data sets to investigate the SFR

Properties of Host Galaxies of Submillimeter Sources as Revealed by JWST Early Release Observations in SMACS J0723.3–7327
