Clash: Extreme emission-line galaxies and their implication on selection of high-redshift galaxies Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We utilize the Cluster Lensing And Supernova survey with Hubble observations of 25 clusters to search for extreme emission-line galaxies (EELGs). The selections are carried out in two central bands: F105W (Y 105) and F125W (J 125), as the flux of the central bands could be enhanced by the presence of [O III] λλ4959, 5007 at redshifts of~ 0.93-1.14 and 1.57-1.79, respectively. The multiband observations help to constrain the equivalent widths (EWs) of emission lines. Thanks to cluster lensing, we are able to identify 52 candidates …
