ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, IR ; Redshifts ; Spectroscopy ; Active gal. nuclei ; Photometry, millimetric/submm ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: high-redshift - quasars: general - galaxies: starburst Abstract: We present results on low-resolution mid-infrared (MIR) spectra of 70 IR-luminous galaxies obtained with the infrared spectrograph (IRS) onboard Spitzer. We selected sources from the European Large Area Infrared Survey with S15>0.8mJy and photometric or spectroscopic z>1. About half of the samples are quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) in the optical, while the remaining sources are galaxies, comprising both obscured active galactic nuclei (AGN) and starbursts. Redshifts were obtained from optical spectroscopy, photometric redshifts and the IRS spectra. The later turn out to be reliable for obscured and/or star-forming sources, thus becoming an ideal complement to optical spectroscopy for redshift estimation. Description: All targets were observed in the two low-resolution modules of the IRS, short low (SL) and long low (LL), exposing the two subslits on each of them (SL1, SL2, LL1 and LL2) and thus covering the 5-38um range.
