Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emission within Lyα blobs

Colbert, James W; Scarlata, C; Teplitz, Harry; Francis, Paul; Palunas, P; Williger, Gerard; Woodgate, Bruce


We present Spitzer observations of Lyα blobs (LABs) at z = 2.38-3.09. The mid-infrared ratios (4.5 μm/8 μm and 8 μm/24 μm) indicate that ∼60% of LAB infrared counterparts are cool, consistent with their infrared output being dominated by star forma
