Lyα Halos

We are studying Lyα halos of a sample of 7 low redshift galaxies with the aim of comparing them to high-redshift samples and understanding the production of extended Lyα emission.

This project focuses on a set of galaxies selected to be comparable to high-redshift targets and to have low Lyα systematics.

We are studying profiles of Lyα emission and comparing the results to high-redshift samples such as Leclercq et al. 2017. The paper is currently in review and coming soon to MNRAS
