From left to right: log LLyα plotted against MUV for z ~ 3.6, 4.9, and 6.0. The black circles indicate our individual LAEs. In each panel, objects with log (LLyα/erg s-1) < 41.0 are placed at 41.0 for display purposes. Left panel: red circles show spectroscopically confirmed LAEs from Ouchi et al. (2008) at z ~ 3.1 and 3.7, while blue circles indicate a photometric LAE sample from Gronwall et al. (2007). Middle panel: red circles correspond to z ~ 4.5 LAEs studied by Zheng et al. (2014). Right panel: red circles show spectroscopically confirmed LAEs from Ouchi et al. (2008) at z ~ 5.7. Blue circles indicate spectroscopically confirmed LAEs from Kashikawa et al. (2011) at z ~ 5.7 and 6.5, while orange circles are spectroscopically confirmed LAEs from Jiang et al. (2013) at z ~ 5.7, 6.5, and 7.0. In each panel, the vertical dashed line at MUV=−18.5 and the horizontal dashed line at log (LLyα/erg s-1) = 42.2 show the cuts used for fair comparisons of EW0 scale lengths at 2.9 <z< 6.6 (see Sect. 6.3).

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.
