Galaxies at high redshift with a strong Ly-α emission line trace massive star formation in the absence of dust, and can therefore be regarded as a prime signature of the first major starburst in galaxies. We report results of the Ly-α search within the Calar Alto Deep Imaging Survey (CADIS). With the imaging Fabry-Perot interferometer, CADIS can detect emission lines in three waveband windows free of night-sky emission lines at 700 nm, 820 nm, and 920 nm. The typical flux detection limit for Ly…
