Abstract

We investigate the nature of a population of z ∼ 2 galaxies that shows a distinct mid-IR excess flux density at 24μm with respect to that expected from the star formation rate as estimated at radio, UV, 70μm, soft X-ray, and submm wavelengths. These mid-IR excess galaxies, identified in the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS), represent ≈ 20–30… (More)
