• #### Alignment in the orientation of LOFAR radio sources ﻿

(2020-08-25)
Various studies have laid claim to finding an alignment of the polarization vectors or radio jets of active galactic nuclei (AGN) over large distances, but these results have proven controversial and so far, there is no ...
• #### The environments of radio-loud AGN from the LOFAR Two-Metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) ﻿

(2018-10-10)
An understanding of the relationship between radio-loud active galaxies and their large-scale environments is essential for realistic modelling of radio-galaxy evolution and environmental impact, for understanding AGN ...
• #### Giant radio galaxies in the LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey-I ﻿

(2020-03-01)
Giant radio galaxies (GRGs) are a subclass of radio galaxies which have grown to megaparsec scales. GRGs are much rarer than normal sized radio galaxies ( less than 0.7 Mpc) and the reason for their gigantic sizes is still ...
• #### The life cycle of radio galaxies in the LOFAR Lockman Hole field ﻿

(2020-06-08)
Radio galaxies are known to go through cycles of activity, where phases of apparent quiescence can be followed by repeated activity of the central supermassive black hole. A better understanding of this cycle is crucial ...
• #### LOFAR Properties of SILVERRUSH Lya emitter candidates in the ELAIS-N1 Field ﻿

(2021-04-07)
Lyman alpha emitters (LAEs) in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR) offer valuable probes of early galaxy evolution and the process of reionization; however, the exact evolution of their abundance and the nature of their emission ...
• #### The LOFAR Two Metre Sky Survey: Deep Fields Data Release 1. III. Host-galaxy identifications and value added catalogues ﻿

(2021-04-07)
We present the source associations, cross-identifications, and multi-wavelength properties of the faint radio source population detected in the deep tier of the LOFAR Two Metre Sky Survey (LoTSS): the LoTSS Deep Fields. ...
• #### The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) III. First Data Release: optical/IR identifications and value-added catalogue ﻿

(2018-11-09)
The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) is an ongoing sensitive, high-resolution 120-168 MHz survey of the Northern sky with diverse and ambitious science goals. Many of the scientific objectives of LoTSS rely upon, or are ...
• #### The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey Deep fields: : The star formation rate - radio luminosity relation at low frequencies ﻿

(2021-04-07)
In this paper, we investigate the relationship between 150 MHz luminosity and the star-formation rate - the SFR-L150 MHz relation - using 150 MHz measurements for a near-infrared selected sample of 118 517 z < 1 galaxies. ...
• #### The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey Deep Fields: Data release 1. IV. Photometric redshifts and stellar masses ﻿

(2021-04-07)
The Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) is a sensitive, high-resolution 120-168 MHz survey split across multiple tiers over the northern sky. The first LoTSS Deep Fields data release consists of deep ...
• #### The LOFAR window on star-forming galaxies and AGN - curved radio SEDs and IR-radio correlation at 0 < z < 2.5 ﻿

(2017-08-11)
We present a study of the low-frequency radio properties of star forming (SF) galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGN) up to redshift $z=2.5$. The new spectral window probed by the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) allows us ...
• #### LOFAR-Boötes : Properties of high- and low-excitation radio galaxies at 0.5 < z < 2.0 ﻿

(2018-04-11)
This paper presents a study of the redshift evolution of radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) as a function of the properties of their galaxy hosts in the Boötes field. To achieve this we match low-frequency radio sources ...
• #### A LOFAR-IRAS cross-match study : the far-infrared radio correlation and the 150-MHz luminosity as a star-formation rate ﻿

(2019-11-01)
Aims. We aim to study the far-infrared radio correlation (FIRC) at 150 MHz in the local Universe (at a median redshift z~0:05) and improve the use of the rest-frame 150-MHz luminosity, L150, as a star-formation rate (SFR) ...
