First direct metallicity measurement of a lensed star-forming galaxy at z = 1.7

Yuan, TianTian; Kewley, Lisa

Description

We present the rest-frame optical spectrum of a strongly lensed galaxy at redshift z = 1.7 behind the cluster Abell 1689. We detect the temperature sensitive auroral line [OIII] λ4363, which allows the first direct metallicity measurement for galaxies at
