Vigorous star formation in a bulge-dominated extremely red object at z=1.34

Abstract:

We present near-infrared (near-IR) spectroscopy of three extremely red objects (EROs) using the OHS/CISCO spectrograph at the Subaru Telescope. One target exhibits a strong emission line, which we identify as Ha at z = 1.34. Using new and existing ground-based optical and near-IR imaging, and archival Hubble Space Telescope imaging, we argue that this target is essentially an elliptical galaxy, with an old stellar population of around 4 × 10 11 M ...
