We shall refer to this region as the Hawaii-HDF-N. Deep data were collected in U, B, V, R, I, and z' bands over the central 0.2 degrees^2 ... More
Imaging the molecular gas in a submm galaxy at z = 4.05: cold mode accretion or a major merger?Feb 22 2010We present a high resolution (down to 0.18"), multi-transition imaging study of the molecular gas in the z = 4.05 submillimeter galaxy GN20. GN20 is one of the most luminous starburst galaxy known at z > 4, and is a member of a rich proto-cluster of galaxies ... More
The distribution of metals in hot DA white dwarfsJan 13 2012The importance to stellar evolution of understanding the metal abundances in hot white dwarfs is well known. Previous work has found the hot DA white dwarfs REJ 1032+532, REJ 1614-085 and GD 659 to have highly abundant, stratified photospheric nitrogen, ... More
The z=0.8596 Damped Lyman Alpha Absorbing Galaxy Toward PKS 0454+039Dec 27 1994Dec 29 1994We present {\it Hubble Space Telescope} and ground--based data on the $z_{abs}=0.8596$ metal line absorption system along the line of sight to PKS 0454+0356. The system is a moderate redshift damped Lyman alpha system, with ${\rm N(HI)}=(5.7\pm0.3)\times10^{20}$~cm$^{-2}$ ... More
TeV gamma rays from PSR 1706-44Apr 22 1998Observations made with the University of Durham Mark 6 atmospheric Cerenkov telescope confirm that PSR B1706-44 is a very high energy gamma-ray emitter. There is no indication from our dataset that the very high energy gamma-rays are pulsed, in contrast ... More
The population of BzK selected ULIRGs at z~2Jul 21 2005We investigate the multi-wavelength emission of BzK selected star forming galaxies at z~2 in the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) North region. Most (82%) of the sources are individually detected at 24um in the Spitzer MIPS imaging, and ... More
Deciphering the activity and quiescence of high-redshift cluster environments: ALMA observations of ClJ1449+0856 at z=2Jun 18 2018We present ALMA observations of the 870$\mu$m continuum and CO(4-3) line emission in the core of the galaxy cluster ClJ1449+0856 at z=2, a NIR-selected, X-ray detected system in the mass range of typical progenitors of today's massive clusters. The 870$\mu$m ... More
The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey - VLT/VIMOS Spectroscopy in the GOODS-South Field: Part IIJan 07 2010We present the full data set of the VIMOS spectroscopic campaign of the ESO/GOODS program in the CDFS, which complements the FORS2 ESO/GOODS spectroscopic campaign. The GOODS/VIMOS spectroscopic campaign is structured in two separate surveys using two ... More
Evolution of Disk Galaxies in the GOODS-South Field: Number Densities and Size DistributionJan 22 2004Jan 26 2004We examine the evolution of the sizes and number densities of disk galaxies using the high resolution images obtained by the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). ...

GMASS Ultradeep Spectroscopy of Galaxies at 1.4<z<2. II. Superdense passive galaxies: how did they form and evolve ?Jan 08 2008We combine ultradeep optical spectroscopy from the GMASS project ("Galaxy Mass Assembly ultradeep Spectroscopic Survey") with GOODS multi-band photometry and HST imaging to study a sample of passive galaxiesat 1.39<z<1.99 selected at 4.5 microns. A stacked ... More
GMASS ultradeep spectroscopy of galaxies at z ~ 2 - VII. Star formation, extinction, and gas outflows from UV spectraNov 18 2011We use rest-frame UV spectroscopy to investigate the properties related to large-scale gas outflows, and to the dust extinction and star-formation rates of a sample of z ~ 2 star-forming galaxies from the Galaxy Mass Assembly ultradeep Spectroscopic Survey ...

GMASS, Unveiling Distant Massive Galaxies with SpitzerApr 06 2006One of the main questions of galaxy formation is how and when galaxies assembled their mass. Observations suggest that most mass assembly and star formation occured at 1 < z < 3. However, in the same redshift range, fully assembled old and massive galaxies ... More
Color-selected galaxies at z~6 in the Great Observatories Origins Deep SurveySep 02 2003We report early results on galaxies at z~6, selected from Hubble Space Telescope imaging for the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey. Spectroscopy of one object with the Advanced Camera for Surveys grism and from the Keck and VLT observatories a shows ... More
