LAE luminosity function in different redshift bins. No IGM absorption correction was applied here. Upper left, upper right and bottom left panels indicate 2 < z < 3.2, 3.2 < z < 4.55 and 4.55 < z < 6.6 respectively. The error bars reflect the Poissonian errors. Black points show literature data, spanning from z = 3 to z = 5.7: diamonds, triangles and squares represent Ouchi et al. (2008) at respectively z = 3.1, z = 3.7 and z = 5.7; asterisks, plus signs, crosses and circles indicate respectively Shimasaku et al. (2006) at z = 5.7, Murayama et al. (2007) at z = 5.7, Gronwall et al. (2007) at z = 3.1 and Dawson et al. (2007) at z = 4.5. We group together our measurements in the different redshift bins in the bottom right panel, to show that within the error bars, the Lyα LF does not evolve from z = 2.5 to z = 6.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
