Minor-merger-driven growth of early-type galaxies over the last 8 billion years
(Cambridge University Press, 2011-09)
We summarise recent progress in understanding the star formation activity in early-type galaxies (ETGs), using recent studies that leverage photometry in the rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths. While classically thought ...
The Hubble Space Telescope wide field camera 3 early release science data : Panchromatic faint object counts for 0.2-2 μm wavelength
We describe the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) Early Release Science (ERS) observations in the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) South field. The new WFC3 ERS data provide calibrated, ...
Anatomy of a post-starburst minor merger : A multi-wavelength WFC3 study of NGC 4150
We present a spatially resolved near-UV/optical study, using the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on board the Hubble Space Telescope, of NGC 4150, a sub-L , early-type galaxy (ETG) of around 6 × 10 M , which has been observed ...
