We present the results of a narrow-band (H2S1, 2.121/0.021um) imaging search with WFCAM/UKIRT for H-alpha emitters around several potential signposts of rare (10^-7-10^-8 Mpc^-3) over-dense regions at z=2.23: an over-density of QSOs (2QZ cluster), a powerful, high-redshift radio galaxy (HzRG), and a concentration of submillimetre galaxies (SMGs) and optically faint radio galaxies (OFRGs). In total, we detect 137 narrow-band emitter candidates down to emission-line fluxes of 0.5-1 x 10^-16 erg s… 
The clustering of H-alpha emitters at z=2.23 from HiZELS
(abridged) We present a clustering analysis of 370 high-confidence H-alpha emitters (HAEs) at z=2.23. The HAEs are detected in the Hi-Z Emission Line Survey (HiZELS), a large-area blank field 2.121um
A Planck-selected dusty proto-cluster at z = 2.16 associated with a strong overdensity of massive Hα-emitting galaxies
We discovered an over-density of H-alpha-emitting galaxies associated with a Planck compact source in the COSMOS field (PHzG237.0+42.5) through narrow-band imaging observations with Subaru/MOIRCS.

The Galaxy Environment of Extremely Massive Quasars. I. An Overdensity of Hα Emitters at z = 1.47
We measure a strong excess in the galaxy number density around PG 1630+377, an extremely massive (M BH ≃ 109.7 M ⊙) quasar at z = 1.475, using near-infrared narrowband imaging. We identify 79 narrow
Massive starburst galaxies in a z = 2.16 proto-cluster unveiled by panoramic Hα mapping
We present a panoramic narrow-band study of Hα emitters in the field of the z = 2.16 proto-cluster around PKS 1138−262 using MOIRCS on the Subaru Telescope. We find 83 Hα emitters down to a star
