  • Spitzer MIPS images in the Bootes field of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey have revealed a class of extremely dust-obscured galaxy (DOG) at z ~ 2. The DOGs are defined by very red optical to mid-infrared (IR; observed-frame) colors, R – [24 μm] > 14 mag, i.e. f_ν(24 μm)/f_ν(R) > 1000. They are ultra-luminous infrared galaxies with L_(8-1000 μm) > 10^(12)-10^(14) L⊙, but typically have very faint optical (rest-frame UV) fluxes. We imaged three DOGs with the Keck laser guide star adaptive optics… CONTINUE READING
