We make use of the Survey of High-z Absorption Red and Dead Sources, an ultradeep (<26.5AB) galaxy survey that provides optical photospectra at resolution R similar to 50, via medium-band filters (FWHM similar to 150 angstrom). This data set is combined with ancillary optical and NIR fluxes to constrain the dust attenuation law in the rest-frame NUV region of star-forming galaxies within the redshift window 1.5 < z < 3. We focus on the NUV bump strength (B) and the total-to-selective extinction… 
A deeper look at the dust attenuation law of star-forming galaxies at high redshift
A diverse range of dust attenuation laws is found in star-forming galaxies. In particular, Tress et al. (2018) studied the SHARDS survey to constrain the NUV bump strength (B) and the
Constraints on the dust extinction law of the Galaxy with Swift/UVOT, Gaia, and 2MASS
We explore variations of the dust extinction law of the Milky Way by selecting stars from the Swift/UVOT Serendipitous Source Catalogue, cross-matched with Gaia DR2 and 2MASS to produce a sample of
Revealing the dust attenuation properties on resolved scales in NGC 628 with SWIFT UVOT data
Understanding how dust attenuation laws vary between and within galaxies is a key question if we want to reliably measure the physical properties of galaxies at both global and local scales. To
The MOSDEF Survey: The Variation of the Dust Attenuation Curve with Metallicity
We derive a UV-optical stellar dust attenuation curve of galaxies at z = 1.4–2.6 as a function of gas-phase metallicity. We use a sample of 218 star-forming galaxies, excluding those with very young
Dust Attenuation Curves at z ∼ 0.8 from LEGA-C: Precise Constraints on the Slope and 2175Å Bump Strength
We present a novel approach to measure the attenuation curves of 485 individual star-forming galaxies with > 1010 M⊙ based on deep optical spectra from the VLT/VIMOS LEGA-C survey and multiband
Galaxy Inclination and the IRX–β Relation: Effects on UV Star Formation Rate Measurements at Intermediate to High Redshifts
At intermediate and high redshifts, measurements of galaxy star formation rates are usually based on rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) data. A correction for dust attenuation, AUV, is needed for these
Dust Attenuation Curves in the Local Universe: Demographics and New Laws for Star-forming Galaxies and High-redshift Analogs
We study the dust attenuation curves of 230,000 individual galaxies in the local universe, ranging from quiescent to intensely star-forming systems, using GALEX, SDSS, and WISE photometry calibrated
Dust Attenuation Curve for Local Subgalactic Star-forming Regions
We compile a sample of about 157,000 spaxels from the Mapping Nearby Galaxies at the Apache Point Observatory (MaNGA) survey to derive the average dust attenuation curve for subgalactic star-forming
Dust Attenuation and Maintenance-Mode Feedback in the 6 Gyr old Universe and Now
This thesis addresses two distinct challenges in the galaxy formation and evolution theory. The first one is to accurately measure the dust attenuation. Understanding the global effects of dust on
The 2175 Å Dust Feature in Star-forming Galaxies at 1.3 ≤ z ≤ 1.8: The Dependence on Stellar Mass and Specific Star Formation Rate
We present direct spectroscopic measurements of the broad 2175 Å absorption feature in 505 star-forming main-sequence galaxies at 1.3 ≤ z ≤ 1.8 using individual and stacked spectra from the
