  • We quantify the directional dependence of the escape fraction of Lyman-$\alpha$ (Ly$\alpha$) and non-ionising UV-continuum photons from a multiphase medium, and investigate whether there exist directional enhancements in the Ly$\alpha$ equivalent width (EW). Our multiphase medium consists of spherically symmetric distributions of cold, dusty clumps embedded within a hot dust-free medium. We focus on three models from the analysis presented by Laursen et al. (2013). We find that for a Ly$\alpha… CONTINUE READING
