- Much previous BAO work has used LRGs: very bright! But few in number
- Emission line galaxies are more numerous but not so bright
- Star Formation Rate is gauged by emission lines esp Hα and [O II]
- [O II] 3727 can accomplish a lot from mountaintops: 1 micron is z=1.68
- Hα 6563 although stronger, requires spaceborne observatory
- Then there’s [O III] 5007, yet another tool.

1. BAO Goals: nP ~ 1 and lots of modes

2. Review SFR(z) and model it

3. Review LF(z) for Halpha and [O II]

4. Model LF(z) for Halpha and [O II]

5. Predict harvests of BAO surveys, space and ground.

Rough analogy to Parkinson et al “Optimizing BAO Surveys” arXiv 0702040 which was done to optimize WFMOS (ground only): they found it best to concentrate on 0.8<z<1.4 over the widest possible sky area and to kiss off Lyα at z~3.

Throughout: I adopt a “737” cosmology.

Simplest Abell Luminosity Function

- Abell model (ARAA v.3, 1-22, 1965) parameters Lb, Nb at the break;
- Nearly flat power law at faint end
- Break
- Nearly inverse-square power law at bright end

- Schechter model (ApJ 203, 297-306, 1976) parameters L*, Φ* at the break;
- Nearly flat power law at faint end
- Break
- Exponential decrease at bright end

- Both developed for galaxy continuua
- They differ only at the bright end: Abell=slope; Schechter=dropoff.
- Which might apply for line emission?
- Because of the log-log straight-line LFs seen in DEEP2 (which go to very sparse densities) I adopt the Abell model here.
- Other adopters: Hao et al 0501042 (ELGs); Croom et al MNRAS 349 1397 2004 (QSOs)

Step 4: Hα LF model

log(Nb) = -3.5+2.0*(x-x²)

log(Lb) = +41.5+3.0*(x-x²)

where x = log10(1+z)

Abell distribution eyeball fitted to Sumiyoshi et al 2009 Hα

NEWS FLASH : Previously sought nP=1 and Zmax=2; but Linder and others (this conference) recommend NP=2 or even 3; Zmax=1.7 not 2.0

This extrapolated LF based on Sumiyoshi has many uncertainties, and the JDEM BAO team has recommended a higher sensitivity, ~ 1.6E-16 erg/cm2s

Abell distribution eyeball fitted to Sumiyoshi et al 2009 [O II] 3727+3729

BigBOSS White Paper Fig.2 based on DEEP2 and VVDS

Goal: doublet flux ~ 1E-16 erg from this alone. But atmospheric observing complications and uncertainties about the LF at z>1.5 argue for higher sensitivity; working goal = 2.5E-17 erg/cm2sec for each component.

MDLF Results for BigBOSSGoal is to use < 1 hour exposures and get SNR=8 (see chart 22)…at z=2: 2.5E-17 erg/cm2s, will need the whole 4ksecat z=1: 1E-16 erg/cm2s, will need < 1 ksec

At Tobs = 1 h, 4000 fibers and 100 nights/year at 8h/night is 3 million targets per year -- and of course there is additional yield since most targets have z<2.0 and so won’t need the full 4000 seconds of exposure each,so smart fiber reallocation can improve yield rather than SNR.

Model MDLF

M.Lampton Sept 2009

MDLF Results for JDEMGoal is to use ~ 1ksec exposures Hα and get SNR>6…at z=2: can get to 2.5E-16 erg/cm2s, using 1ksecat z=1: with 1ksec will gain improved SNR

At 1 kilosec exposures, 6 MCT sensors & 0.5 arcsec pixels, the FOV is 0.46 sq degrees. With 100 sec lost per maneuver and 70% on orbit efficiency, the net survey rate is 9000 square degrees per year.
