We derive the mean wavelength dependence of stellar attenuation in a sample of 239 high redshift ( 1.90 < z < 2.35 ?> ) galaxies selected via Hubble Space Telescope WFC3 IR grism observations of their rest-frame optical emission lines. Our analysis indicates that the average reddening law follows a form similar to that derived by Calzetti et al. for local starburst galaxies. However, over the mass range 7.2 ≲ log M / M ⊙ ≲ 10.2 , ?> the slope of the attenuation law in the ultraviolet (UV) is… 
Dust attenuation and Hα emission in a sample of galaxies observed with Herschel at 0.6 < z < 1.6
Context. Dust attenuation shapes the spectral energy distribution of galaxies. It is particularly true for dusty galaxies in which stars experience a heavy attenuation. The combination of UV to IR
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
