We study the escape of Lyα photons from Lyα emitting galaxies (LAEs) and the overall galaxy population using a sample of 99 LAEs at 1.9 (3-6) × 1042 erg s–1 (0.25-0.5 L*), have a mean E(B – V) = 0.13 ± 0.01, implying an attenuation of ~70% in the UV. They show a median UV uncorrected SFR = 11 M ☉ yr–1, dust-corrected SFR = 34 M ☉ yr–1, and Lyα equivalent widths (EWs) which are consistent with normal stellar populations. We measure a median Lyα escape fraction of 29%, with a large scatter and… Expand
