We present preliminary results of H_alpha near-infrared spectroscopy of six galaxies with redshifts z ~ 1 drawn from the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey. The spectra have been taken with the multi-slit mode of LIRIS (Long-slit Intermediate Resolution Infrared Spectrograph) installed at the 4.2-m William Herschel Telescope. This is a pilot study for a larger program to obtain H_alpha luminosities of about 50 star-forming galaxies at z ~ 1, with the aim of deriving the corresponding star formation… Expand
