We study the far-infrared and sub-millimetre properties of a sample of ultraviolet (UV) selected galaxies at z ∼ 1.5. Using stacking at 250, 350 and 500 μm from Herschel Space Observatory Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) imaging of the Cosmological Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field obtained within the Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey (HERMES) key programme, we derive the mean infrared (IR) luminosity as a function of both UV luminosity and slope of the UV continuum…

HerMES: dust attenuation and star formation activity in ultraviolet-selected samples from z ∼ 4 to ∼ 1.5
We study the link between observed ultraviolet (UV) luminosity, stellar mass and dust attenuation within rest-frame UV-selected samples at z ∼ 4,  ∼ 3 and ∼1.5. We measure by stacking at 250, 350 and
The UV continua and inferred stellar populations of galaxies at z ~7-9 revealed by the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field 2012 campaign
We use the new ultra-deep, near-infrared imaging of the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF) provided by our UDF12 Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Camera 3/IR campaign to explore the rest-frame
Galaxies' rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) properties are often used to directly infer the degree to which dust obscuration affects the measurement of star formation rates (SFRs). While much recent work
Modelling the connection between ultraviolet and infrared galaxy populations across cosmic times
Using a phenomenological approach, we self-consistently model the redshift evolution of the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) luminosity functions across cosmic time, as well as a range of observed
UVUDF: UV Luminosity Functions at the Cosmic High Noon
We present the rest-1500 A UV luminosity functions (LF) for star-forming galaxies during the cosmic high noon—the peak of cosmic star formation rate at 1.5 < z < 3. We use deep NUV imaging data
The ultraviolet to far-infrared spectral energy distribution of star-forming galaxies in the redshift desert
We analyse the rest-frame UV-to-NIR spectral energy distribution (SED) of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs), star-forming (SF) BzK (sBzK), and UV-selected galaxies at 1.5 < z < 2.5 in the COSMOS, GOODS-N,
Galaxy Inclination and the IRX–β Relation: Effects on UV Star Formation Rate Measurements at Intermediate to High Redshifts
At intermediate and high redshifts, measurements of galaxy star-formation rates are usually based on rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) data. A correction for dust attenuation, A_UV, is needed for these
The IRX-β dust attenuation relation in cosmological galaxy formation simulations
We utilise a series of high-resolution cosmological zoom simulations of galaxy formation to investigate the relationship between the ultraviolet (UV) slope, beta, and the ratio of the infrared
The infrared-radio correlation of star-forming galaxies is stronglyM⋆-dependent but nearly redshift-invariant sincez∼ 4
Over the past decade, several works have used the ratio between total (rest 8−1000μm) infrared and radio (rest 1.4 GHz) luminosity in star-forming galaxies (qIR), often referred to as the
Quantifying the UV-continuum slopes of galaxies to z ∼ 10 using deep Hubble+Spitzer/IRAC observations
Measurements of the UV-continuum slopes β provide valuable information on the physical properties of galaxies forming in the early universe, probing the dust reddening, age, metal content, and even


GOODS-Herschel Measurements of the Dust Attenuation of Typical Star-forming Galaxies at High Redshift: Observations of Ultraviolet-selected Galaxies at z ~ 2
We take advantage of the sensitivity and resolution of the Herschel Space Observatory at 100 and 160 mu m to directly image the thermal dust emission and investigate the infrared luminosities (L-IR)
Star formation history and dust content of galaxies drawn from ultraviolet surveys
We compile a new sample of 115 nearby, non-Seyfert galaxies spanning a wide range of star formation activities, from starburst to nearly dormant, based on ultraviolet observations with various

Context. Studies of the infrared (IR) emission of cosmic sources have proven essential to constraining the evolutionary history of cosmic star formation and the gravitational accretion of nuclear
Dust Absorption and the Ultraviolet Luminosity Density at z ≈ 3 as Calibrated by Local Starburst Galaxies*
We refine a technique to measure the absorption-corrected ultraviolet (UV) luminosity of starburst galaxies using rest-frame UV quantities alone and apply it to Lyman-limit U dropouts at z ? 3 found
We provide a systematic measurement of the rest-frame UV continuum slope β over a wide range in redshift (z ~ 2-6) and rest-frame UV luminosity (0.1 L^*_(z = 3) to 2 L^*_(z = 3)) to improve estimates
Multiwavelength Observations of Dusty Star Formation at Low and High Redshift
If high-redshift galaxies resemble rapidly star-forming galaxies in the local universe, most of the luminosity produced by their massive stars will have been absorbed by dust and reradiated as

The Herschel Space Observatory enables us to accurately measure the bolometric output of starburst galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGN) by directly sampling the peak of their far-infrared (IR)
