Old elliptical galaxies at z similar to 1.5 and the Kormendy relation

Abstract:

Deep spectroscopy of the two Leiden-Berkeley Deep Survey mJy radio galaxies LBDS 53W069 and 53W091 has previously shown them to have old (≳3 Gyr) stellar populations at z ≃ 1.5. Here we present the results of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations with the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) in F814W and with the Near-Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrograph (NICMOS) in F110W. We find that 53W069 has a de Vaucouleurs r1/4 profile in both the F814W and F110W data, with a mean eff...
