Abstract The Epoch of Reionization (EoR) represents a milestone in the evolution of our Universe. Star-forming galaxies that existed during the EoR likely emitted a significant fraction ( ~ 5 − 40%) of their bolometric luminosity as Lyα line emission. However, neutral intergalactic gas that existed during the EoR was opaque to Lyα emission that escaped from galaxies during this epoch, which makes it difficult to observe. The neutral intergalactic medium (IGM) may thus reveal itself by… Expand
