New results from a large survey of Hα emission-line galaxies at z = 0.84 using the Wide Field Camera on the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope and a custom narrow-band filter in the J band are presented as part of the High-z Emission Line Survey (HiZELS). The deep narrow-band images reach an effective flux limit of F Hα ∼ 10 -16 erg s -1 cm -2 in a comoving volume of 1.8 × 10 5 Mpc 3, resulting in the largest and deepest survey of its kind ever done at z ∼ 1. There are 1517 potential line…

On near-infrared Hα searches for high-redshift galaxies⋆
The lack of success of Lyman-alpha searches for high-redshift (z>2) field galaxies may be due to extinction by dust, suggesting that surveys based on lines of longer wavelength, particularly H-alpha,
