Halo ejection in distant radio galaxies: jet feedback in massive galaxy formation

Dopita, Michael; Reuland, Michiel; van Breugel, Wil; de Vries, Wim; Stanford, S. Adam; Rottgering, Hubb; Miley, George; Venemans, Bram; Spinrad, Hy; Dawson, Steve; Dey, Arjun; Lacy, Mark; Stern, Daniel; Bunker, Andrew


We present results from a Keck optical and near IR spectroscopic study of the giant emission line halos of the z>3 High Redshift Radio Galaxies (HiZRGs) 4C 41.17, 4C 60.07 and B2 0902+34. The outer regions of these halos show quiet kinematics with typical velocity dispersions of a few hundred km∈s-1 and velocity shears consistent with rotation. The inner regions contain shocked, clumpy cocoons of gas closely associated with the radio lobes with disturbed kinematics and expansion velocities...[Show more]
