Fluorescent Lyman α emission from gas near a QSO at redshift 4.28

Francis, Paul; McDonnell, Sunsanee


We use integral field spectroscopy with the Gemini North Telescope to detect probable fluorescent Lyman α (Lyα) emission from gas lying close to the luminous QSO PSS 2155+1358 at redshift 4.28. The emission is most likely coming not from primordial gas,
