We present the HST WFC3/F275W UV imaging observations of A2218-Flanking, a lensed compact dwarf galaxy at redshift . The stellar mass of A2218-Flanking is and SFR is yr−1 after correcting the magnification. This galaxy has a young galaxy age of 127 Myr and a compact galaxy size of . The HST UV imaging observations cover the rest-frame Lyman continuum (LyC) emission (∼800 Å) from A2218-Flanking. We firmly detect ( ) the LyC emission in A2218-Flanking in the F275W image. Together with the HST…

CDFS-6664: A Candidate of Lyman-continuum Emission at z ∼ 3.8 Detected by the Hubble Deep UV Legacy Survey

We report the detection of Lyman continuum (LyC) emission from the galaxy, CDFS-6664, at z = 3.797 in a sample of Lyman break galaxies with detected [O iii] emission lines. The LyC emission is

Lyman continuum escape fraction in Ly α emitters at z ≃ 3.1

We measure the LyC escape fraction in 54 faint Lyman Alpha Emitters (LAEs) at z ≃ 3.1 in the GOODS-South field. With the average magnitude of R = 26.7 AB (MUV = −18.8, L ≃ 0.1L ), these galaxies

Lyman Continuum Galaxy Candidates in COSMOS

Star-forming galaxies are the sources likely to have reionized the universe. As we cannot observe them directly due to the opacity of the intergalactic medium at z ≳ 5, we study z ∼ 3–5 galaxies as

The Lyman Continuum Escape Survey: Ionizing Radiation from [O iii]-strong Sources at a Redshift of 3.1

Lyman Continuum Emission Escaping from Luminous Green Pea Galaxies at z = 0.5

Compact starburst galaxies are thought to include many or most of the galaxies from which substantial Lyman continuum emission can escape into the intergalactic medium. Li & Malkan used Sloan Digital

HST Imaging of the Ionizing Radiation from a Star-forming Galaxy at z = 3.794

We report on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) detection of the Lyman-continuum (LyC) radiation emitted by a galaxy at redshift z = 3.794 dubbed Ion1. The LyC from Ion1 is detected at 820−890 Å with

We report the discovery of J0121+0025, an extremely luminous and young star-forming galaxy (MUV = −24.11, log[LLyα/erg s−1] = 43.8) at z = 3.244 showing copious Lyman continuum (LyC) leakage (

AstroSat detection of Lyman continuum emission from a z = 1.42 galaxy

One of the outstanding problems of current observational cosmology is to understand the nature of sources that produced the bulk of the ionizing radiation after the Cosmic Dark Age. Direct detection
