We present far-infrared (FIR) photometry at 150 and 205 km of eight low-redshift starburst galaxies obtained with the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) ISOPHOT. Five of the eight galaxies are detected in both wave bands, and these data are used, in conjunction with IRAS archival photometry, to model the dust emission at km. The FIR spectral energy distributions (SEDs) are best —tted by a com- j Z 40 bination of two modi—ed Planck functions, with T D 40¨55 K (warm dust) and T D 20¨23 K (cool dust…

The Evolving Interstellar Medium of Star-forming Galaxies, as Traced by Stardust
We analyze the far-infrared (FIR) properties of ∼5000 star-forming galaxies at z < 4.5, drawn from the deepest, super-deblended catalogs in the GOODS-N and COSMOS fields. We develop a novel
Quantifying dust and the ultraviolet radiation density in the local Universe
A sample of local galaxies for which far-infrared and ultraviolet fluxes are available is used to estimate the characteristic dust extinction in galaxies and to test whether standard dust properties
Stellar, Gas, and Dust Emission of Star-forming Galaxies out to z ∼ 2
While dust is a major player in galaxy evolution, its relationship with gas and stellar radiation in the early universe is still not well understood. We combine 3D-Hubble Space Telescope
Star formation and the interstellar medium in z>6 UV-luminous Lyman-break galaxies
We present Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) detections of atomic carbon line and dust continuum emission in two UV-luminous galaxies at redshift 6. The far-infrared (FIR) luminosities of these
Extremely red galaxies: dust attenuation and classification
We re-address the classification criterion for extremely red galaxies (ERGs) of Pozzetti & Mannucci, which aims to separate, in the I c - K (or R c - K) versus J - K colour-colour diagram, passively
Star formation in 3CR radio galaxies and quasars at z < 1
Using the Herschel Space Observatory we have observed a representative sample of 87 powerful 3CR sources at redshift z < 1. The far-infrared (FIR, 70-500 micron) photometry is combined with
Cold dust and stellar emissions in dust-rich galaxies observed with ALMA: a challenge for SED-fitting techniques
Context. Over the past few years the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) has detected dust-rich galaxies whose cold dust emission is spatially disconnected from the ultraviolet (UV) rest-frame
Galaxy Properties from the Ultra-violet to the Far-Infrared: Lambda-CDM models confront observations
We combine a semi-analytic model of galaxy formation with simple analytic recipes describing the absorption and re-emission of starlight by dust in the interstellar medium of galaxies. We use the
ULTRAVIOLET THROUGH FAR-INFRARED SPATIALLY RESOLVED ANALYSIS OF THE RECENT STAR FORMATION IN M81 (NGC 3031)
The recent star formation (SF) in the early-type spiral galaxy M81 is characterized using imaging observations from the far-ultraviolet to the far-infrared. We compare these data with models of the
DUST ATTENUATION OF THE NEBULAR REGIONS OF z ∼ 2 STAR-FORMING GALAXIES: INSIGHT FROM UV, IR, AND EMISSION LINES
We use a sample of 149 spectroscopically confirmed UV-select ed galaxies at z∼ 2 to investigate the relative dust attenuation of the stellar continuum and the nebular em ission lines. For each galaxy
