SPITZER observations of z-3 Lyman break galaxies: Stellar masses and mid-infrared properties

Abstract:

We describe the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) at z ∼ 3, using deep mid-infrared and optical observations of the extended Groth strip, obtained with IRAC and MIPS on board Spitzer and from the ground, respectively. We focus on LBGs with detections at all four IRAC bands, in particular the 26 galaxies with IRAC 8 μm band (rest-frame K-band) detections. We use stellar population-synthesis models and probe the stellar content of these galaxies. Based on best-...
