We study the multi-wavelength properties of a set of 171 Ly alpha emitting candidates at redshift z = 2.25 found in the COSMOS field, with the aim of understanding the underlying stellar populations in the galaxies. We especially seek to understand what the dust contents, ages and stellar masses of the galaxies are, and how they relate to similar properties of Ly alpha emitters at other redshifts. The candidates here are shown to have different properties from those of Ly alpha emitters found… Expand
Lyman-alpha emitters as tracers of the transitioning Universe
Of the many ways of detecting high redshift galaxies, the selection of objects due to their redshifted Ly-alpha emission has become one of the most successful. But what types of galaxies are selectedExpand
Stellar properties of z ~ 1 Lyman-break galaxies from ACS slitless grism spectra
Lyman-break galaxies are now regularly found in the high redshift Universe by searching for the break in the galaxy spectrum caused by the Lyman-limit redshifted into the optical or even near-IR. AtExpand
Ly alpha-EMITTING GALAXIES AT z=2.1 : STELLAR MASSES, DUST, AND STAR FORMATION HISTORIES FROM SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTION FITTING
We study the physical properties of 216 z similar or equal to 2.1 Ly alpha-emitting galaxies (LAEs) discovered in an ultra-deep narrow-MUSYC image of the ECDF-S. We fit their stacked spectral energExpand
Propagation of light: Coherent or Monte-Carlo computation ?
Wrong Monte-Carlo computations are used to study the propagation of light in low pressure gas of nebulae. We recall that the incoherent interactions required for Monte Carlo calculations andExpand
