« The cold gas in the interstellar medium of high-redshift galaxies »

A quasar is an extremely bright point source in the high-z uni-
verse, providing an unique technique to probe the medium along
the line-of-sight. The emission of a quasar goes through a galaxy,
the spectroscopic absorption lines gives us information about inter-
stellar-medium (ISM) in the galaxy. Thus the absorption lines are
widely used as a strong tool to study the physical conditions of the
gas in the intervening systems. I will introduce how we select the
sample, obtain the physical properties of the ISM from the quasar
spectrum and how we connect the results to the star formation
and galaxy evolution.
