Studying very high redshift Galaxies through Gravitational Telescopes (HIGHZLENS)
Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Aug 31, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"This program aims to study the formation and evolution of high redshift galaxies strongly lensed by a massive cluster acting as a gravitational lens. I plan to study the assembly history of galaxies at 2 < z < 5 through very detailed analysis of highly magnified arcs with Integral Field Spectroscopy, in order to compare the local star formation rate and spectrophotometric properties at a spatial resolution of 0.1-0.2 kpc, allowed by the gravitational lensing effect which stretches the observed physical scales. I will use the new PanSTARRS survey to look for more examples of highly magnified arcs in galaxy-galaxy events. I will perform a large survey for very high redshift lensed galaxies (6
