The K-band Hubble diagram of submillimetre galaxies and hyperluminous galaxies

Abstract:

We present the K-baad Hubble diagrams (K-z relations) of submillimetre-selected galaxies and hyperluminous galaxies (HLIRGs). We report the discovery of a remarkably tight K-z relation of HLIRGs, indistinguishable from that of the most luminous radio galaxies. Like radio galaxies, the HLIRG K-z relation at z ∼ 3 is consistent with a passively evolving ∼3L* instantaneous starburst starting from a redshift of z ∼ 10. In contrast, many submillimetre-selected galaxies are ≳2 mag fainter, and the ...
