    Song, Mimi; Finkelstein, Steven L.; Gebhardt, Karl; Hill, Gary J.; Drory, Niv; Ashby, Matthew L. N.; Blanc, Guillermo A.; Bridge, Joanna; Chonis, Taylor; Ciardullo, Robin; Fabricius, Maximilian; Fazio, Giovanni G.; Gawiser, Eric; Gronwall, Caryl; Hagen, Alex; Huang, Jia-Sheng; Jogee, Shardha; Livermore, Rachael; Salmon, Brett; Schneider, Donald P.; Willner, S. P.; Zeimann, Gregory R. (2014-08)
    We present the results from a Very Large Telescope/SINFONI and Keck/NIRSPEC near-infrared spectroscopic survey of 16 Ly alpha emitters (LAEs) at z = 2.1-2.5 in the COSMOS and GOODS-N fields discovered from the Hobby Eberly ...
  • The VIRUS-P Exploration Of Nearby Galaxies (VENGA): Survey Design, Data Processing, And Spectral Analysis Methods 

    Blanc, Guillermo A.; Weinzirl, Tim; Song, Mimi M.; Heiderman, Amanda; Gebhardt, Karl; Jogee, Shardha; Evans, Neal J.; van den Bosch, Remco C. E.; Luo, Rongxin; Drory, Niv; Fabricius, Maximilian; Fisher, David; Hao, Lei; Kaplan, Kyle; Marinova, Irina; Vutisalchavakul, Nalin; Yoachim, Peter (2013-05)
    We present the survey design, data reduction, and spectral fitting pipeline for the VIRUS-P Exploration of Nearby Galaxies (VENGA). VENGA is an integral field spectroscopic survey, which maps the disks of 30 nearby spiral ...
  • The Virus-P Exploration Of Nearby Galaxies (Venga): The X-Co Gradient In NGC 628 

    Blanc, Guillermo A.; Schruba, Andreas; Evans, Neal J.; Jogee, Shardha; Bolatto, Alberto; Leroy, Adam. K.; Song, Mimi; van den Bosch, Remco C. E.; Drory, Niv; Fabricius, Maximilian; Fisher, David; Gebhardt, Karl; Heiderman, Amanda; Marinova, Irina; Vogel, Stuart; Weinzirl, Tim (2013-02)
    We measure the radial profile of the (CO)-C-12(1-0) to H-2 conversion factor (X-CO) in NGC 628. The H alpha emission from the VENGA integral field spectroscopy is used to map the star formation rate (SFR) surface density ...
