Galaxies under the cosmic microscope: resolved spectroscopy and new constraints on the z=1 Tully-Fisher relation

Abstract:

We exploit the gravitational potential of massive cluster lenses to probe the emission-line properties of six galaxies which appear as highly magnified luminous arcs. Using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS) integral field spectrograph together with detailed cluster lens models, we reconstruct the intrinsic morphologies and two-dimensional velocity fields in these galaxies on scales corresponds to ∼0.5 kpc (unlensed) at . Four of the galaxies have stable disc-like kinematics, whilst ...
