Large Scale Structure Traced by Molecular Gas at High Redshift


We present observations of redshifted CO(1-0) and CO(2-1) in a field containing an overdensity of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) at z = 5.12. Our Australia Telescope Compact Array observations were centered between two spectroscopically-confirmed z = 5.12 galaxies. We place upper limits on the molecular gas masses in these two galaxies of M(H2)< 1.7× 10 10 M… (More)
