J/A+A/391/L11       Lyman alpha forest in HE 0515-4414    (Janknecht+ 2002)

A high-resolution study of the evolution of the Lyman alpha forest in the redshift interval 0.9 < z < 1.7. Janknecht E., Baade R., Reimers D. <Astron. Astrophys. 391, L11 (2002)> =2002A&A...391L..11J
ADC_Keywords: QSOs ; Spectroscopy ; Redshifts Keywords: cosmology: observations - intergalactic medium - quasars: Ly α forest - quasars: individual: HE 0515-4414 Description: We investigated HST/STIS and VLT/UVES spectra of the bright QSO HE 0515-4414 (zem=1.73, B=15.0) to study the Lyman alpha forest in the redshift range 0.9 < z < 1.7 at a resolution <10km/s.
