Obscured star formation in bright z ≃ 7 Lyman-break galaxies

Abstract:

We present Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array observations of the rest-frame far-infrared (FIR) dust continuum emission of six bright Lyman-break galaxies (LBGs) at z ≃ 7. One LBG is detected (5.2σ at peak emission), whilst the others remain individually undetected at the 3σ level. The average FIR luminosity of the sample is found to be LFIR≃2×1011L⊙⁠, corresponding to an obscured star formation rate (SFR) that is comparable to that inferred from the unobscured UV emission. In compa...
