We use new near-infrared spectroscopic observations to investigate the nature and evolution of the most luminous Hα emitters at z ∼ 0.8–2.23, which evolve strongly in number density over this period, and compare them to more typical Hα emitters. We study 59 luminous Hα emitters with LHα > LHα , roughly equally split per redshift slice at z ∼ 0.8, 1.47 and 2… CONTINUE READING
