We report on the results of radio observations in the 21 cm emission line of atomic hydrogen (HI) of four relatively isolated ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs): DGSAT I, R-127-1, M-161-1, and SECCO-dI-2. Our Effelsberg observations resulted in non-detections for the first three UDGs, and a clear detection for the last. DGSAT I, R-127-1, and M-161-1 are quiescent galaxies with gas fractions that are much lower than those of typical field galaxies of the same stellar mass. On the other hand, SECCO-dI… Expand
Spectroscopic characterization of the stellar content of ultra-diffuse galaxies
Understanding the peculiar properties of Ultra Diffuse Galaxies (UDGs) via spectroscopic analysis is a challenging task requiring very deep observations and exquisite data reduction. In this work weExpand
Resolved H i in two ultra-diffuse galaxies from contrasting non-cluster environments
We report on the first resolved H i observations of two blue ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). These observations add to the sofar limited number of UDGsExpand
Origins of ultradiffuse galaxies in the Coma cluster – II. Constraints from their stellar populations
In this second paper of the series we study, with new Keck/DEIMOS spectra, the stellar populations of 7 spectroscopically confirmed ultra--diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in the Coma cluster. We findExpand
CO observations towards H i-rich Ultradiffuse Galaxies
We present CO observations towards a sample of six H I-rich Ultradiffuse galaxies (UDGs) as well as one UDG (VLSB-A) in the Virgo Cluster with the Institut de RadioAstronomie Millimetrique (IRAM)Expand
Contribution of HI-bearing ultra-diffuse galaxies to the cosmic number density of galaxies
We estimate the cosmic number density of the recently identified class of HI-bearing ultra-diffuse sources (HUDs) based on the completeness limits of the ALFALFA survey. These objects have HI massesExpand
(Almost) Dark Galaxies in the ALFALFA Survey: Isolated HI Bearing Ultra Diffuse Galaxies
We present a sample of 115 very low optical surface brightness, highly extended, HI-rich galaxies carefully selected from the ALFALFA survey that have similar optical absolute magnitudes, surfaceExpand
Atomic Gas in Blue Ultra Diffuse Galaxies around Hickson Compact Groups
We have found the atomic gas (HI) reservoirs of the blue ultra diffuse galaxy (UDG) candidates identified by Roman and Trujillo in images near Hickson Compact Groups (HCGs). We confirm that all ofExpand
Formation of ultra-diffuse galaxies in the field and in galaxy groups
We study ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in zoom in cosmological simulations, seeking the origin of UDGs in the field versus galaxy groups. We find that while field UDGs arise from dwarfs in aExpand
Extreme chemical abundance ratio suggesting an exotic origin for an ultradiffuse galaxy
Ultra diffuse galaxies are a population of extended galaxies but with relatively low luminosities. The origin of these objects remains unclear, largely due to the observational challenges of the lowExpand
The environment of H i-bearing ultra-diffuse galaxies in the ALFALFA survey
We explore the environment of 252 H i-bearing ultra-diffuse galaxies (HUDs) from the 100 per cent ALFALFA survey catalogue in an attempt to constrain their formation mechanism. We select sourcesExpand
