### Illuminating protogalaxies? The discovery of extended Lyman-α emission around a QSO at z = 4.5

Abstract:

We have discovered extended Lyman-α emission around a z = 4.5 QSO in a deep long-slit spectrum with Keck/LRIS at moderate spectral resolution (R ≈ 1000). The line emission extends 5 arcsec beyond the continuum of the QSO and is spatially asymmetric. This extended line emission has a spectral extent of 1000km/s, much narrower in velocity spread than the broad Lyman-α from the QSO itself and slightly offset in redshift. No evidence of continuum is seen for the extended emission line region, sug...
