Pascale Hibon visits UCM


Pascale Hibon from Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille has been visiting our team. She is a student under the supervision of Jean-Gabriel Cuby and Chris Lidman.

For her thesis she is trying to find very distant Ly-alpha emitters, at redshift z~8. The detection of these faint objects is made trough the narrow-band technique, in the near infrared in this case, using ISAAC at the VLT and WIRCAM at the CFHT. One of the main goals of her work is constrain the neutral fraction of the IGM during this epoch, through the Ly-alpha luminosity function.
