Top: the 8 μm LFs of MIPS galaxies identified at 1.7 < z < 2.3 with the color selection techniques described in Sects. 3 and 4 (red: BzK; green: BM/BX; yellow: IRAC peakers; blue: OFIR galaxies) compared to the total 8 μm LF measured in the COSMOS field (black solid line). Previous measurements of the total 8 μm LF at z ~ 2 by Rodighiero et al. (2010, filled diamonds) and Caputi et al. (2007, filled squares) are also shown for comparison. Error bars were estimated from the Poisson noise. Bottom: fraction of galaxies identified with each of the color selections as a function of L8   μm and in the 1.5 < z < 2.8 redshift range. Color coding is similar to that used in the top panel.

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.
