(EDP Sciences, 2013)
    Using new homogeneous luminosity functions (LFs) in the far-ultraviolet (FUV) from VVDS and in the far-infrared (FIR) from Herschel/PEP and Herschel/HerMES, we studied the evolution of the dust attenuation with redshift. ...

(American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    The far-infrared (far-IR) luminosities of luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) and ultra-LIRGs (ULIRGs) are dominated by reprocessed thermal dust emission, due to a combination of star formation and active galactic nucleus ...

(American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    Star formation is well traced by dust, which absorbs the UV/optical light produced by young stars in actively starforming regions and re-emits the energy in the far-infrared/ submillimeter (FIR/submm; e.g., Savage & ...

(American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    Gravitational lensing increases the angular size and integrated flux of affected sources. It is exploited to investigate the mass distribution of the foreground lensing structures and the properties of the background lensed ...
