« Lyman alpha emission during and after reionization »

Jordi Miralda Escude
Institut de Ciències del Cosmos (Barcelone, Espagne)

A powerful probe to the high-redshift universe is found in the detection of Lyman alpha photons produced by several processes: star formation, gas cooling, fluorescence of ionizing radiation, and scattering of the background ultraviolet continuum. I will discuss how Lyman alpha emitting galaxies can be used to study the epoch of reionization at z ~ 6, and other applications of Lyman alpha fluorescence at lower redshifts.
