[C ii] 158-μm emission from the host galaxies of damped Lyman-alpha systems
Gas surrounding high redshift galaxies has been studied through observations of absorption line systems toward background quasars for decades. However, it has proven difficult to identify and characterize the galaxies associated with these absorbers due to the intrinsic faintness of the galaxies compared to the quasars at optical wavelengths. Utilizing the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array, we report on detections of [CII] 158 micron line and dust continuum emission from two galaxiesdoi:10.1126/science.aal1737 pmid:28336663 fatcat:j7qfikxwanaafoiat263jtyizi
