Observed at z = 4.601 and with L bol ?> = 3.5 × 10 14 L ⊙ ?> , W2246–0526 is the most luminous galaxy known in the universe and hosts a deeply buried active galactic nucleus (AGN)/supermassive black hole (SMBH). Discovered using the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, W2246–0526 is classified as a hot dust-obscured galaxy, based on its luminosity and dust temperature. Here, we present spatially resolved ALMA [C ii]157.7 μm observations of W2246–0526, providing unique insight into the…

A dust-obscured massive maximum-starburst galaxy at a redshift of 6.34
TLDR
Despite the overall downturn in cosmic star formation towards the highest redshifts, it seems that environments mature enough to form the most massive, intense starbursts existed at least as early as 880 million years after the Big Bang.

Galaxies at redshifts 5 to 6 with systematically low dust content and high [C ii] emission
TLDR
It is found that nine typical star-forming galaxies about one billion years after the Big Bang have thermal emission that is less than 1/12 that of similar systems about two billion years later, and enhanced [C ii] emission relative to the far-infrared continuum, confirming a strong evolution in the properties of the interstellar medium in the early Universe.
