Deciphering Lyman $\alpha$ blob 1 with deep MUSE observations

21 Jul 2020 Herenz Edmund Christian Hayes Matthew Scarlata Claudia

Context: Lyman $\alpha$ blobs (LABs) are large-scale radio-quiet Lyman $\alpha$ (Ly$\alpha$) nebula at high-$z$ that occur predominantly in overdense proto-cluster regions. Especially the prototypical SSA22a-LAB1 at $z=3.1$ has become an observational reference for LABs across the electromagnetic spectrum... (read more)
