We present the first results of a search for Lyα emitters (LAEs) in the DEEP2 spectroscopic database that uses a search technique that is different from but complementary to traditional narrowband imaging surveys. We have visually inspected ~20% of the available DEEP2 spectroscopic data and have found nine high-quality LAEs with clearly asymmetric line profiles and an additional 10 objects of lower quality, some of which may also be LAEs. Our survey is most sensitive to LAEs at z = 4.4–4.9 and… 
NEW RESULTS FROM THE MAGELLAN IMACS SPECTROSCOPIC Lyα SURVEY: NICMOS OBSERVATIONS OF Lyα EMITTERS AT z = 5.7 ∗
We present NICMOS J110 (rest-frame 1200–2100 A) observations of the three z = 5. 7L yα emitters discovered in the blind multislit spectroscopic survey by Martin et al. These images confirm the
A z ∼ 5.7 Lyα EMISSION LINE WITH AN ULTRABROAD RED WING
Using the Ly? emission line as a tracer of high-redshift, star-forming galaxies, hundreds of Ly? emission line galaxies (LAEs) at z > 5 have been detected. These LAEs are considered to be low-mass

Using new Keck DEIMOS spectroscopy, we examine the origin of the steep number counts of ultra-faint emission-line galaxies recently reported by Dressler et al. (2011). We confirm six Lyman Alpha
MUSE integral-field spectroscopy towards the Frontier Fields cluster Abell S1063: II. Properties of low luminosity Lyman α emitters at z > 3
In spite of their conjectured importance for the Epoch of Reionization, the properties of low-mass galaxies are currently still very much under debate. In this article, we study the stellar and
