A survey of NB921 dropouts in the Subaru Deep Field

Abstract

In order to search for high-redshift galaxies beyond z = 6.6 in the Subaru Deep Field, we have investigated NB921-dropout galaxies where NB921 is the narrowband filter centered at 919.6 nm with FWHM of 13.2 nm for the Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope. There are no secure NB921-dropout candidates brighter than z =25.5. Based on this result, we discuss the… (More)
