ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, optical ; Morphology ; Equivalent widths Keywords: cosmology: observations - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: high-redshift Abstract: We compare the physical and morphological properties of z∼2 Lyα emitting galaxies (LAEs) identified in the HETDEX Pilot Survey and narrow band studies with those of z∼2 optical emission line selected galaxies (oELGs) identified via HST WFC3 infrared grism spectroscopy. Both sets of galaxies extend over the same range in stellar mass (7.5<logM/M<10.5), size (0.5<R<3.0kpc), and star formation rate (∼1<SFR<100M/yr). Remarkably, a comparison of the most commonly used physical and morphological parameters - stellar mass, half-light radius, UV slope, SFR, ellipticity, nearest neighbor distance, star formation surface density, specific SFR, [OIII] luminosity, and [OIII] equivalent width - reveals no statistically significant differences between the populations. Description: To determine the photometric properties of both our LAEs and the emission-line selected comparison sample, we took advantage of the multi-wavelength catalog of Skelton et al. (2014ApJS..214...24S), which extends over the CANDELS fields of GOODS-S, GOODS-N, and COSMOS (Grogin et al. 2011ApJS..197...35G). File Summary:
