Beginning of ReadMe : J/ApJ/681/1163 Late-type galaxies in Chandra deep fields (Lehmer+, 2008) ================================================================================ Tracing the mass-dependent star formation history of late-type galaxies using X-ray emission: results from the Chandra deep fields.

Our late-type galaxy sample consists of 2568 galaxies, which were identified using rest-frame optical colors and HST morphologies. We utilized X-ray stacking analyses to investigate the X-ray emission from these galaxies, emphasizing the contributions from normal galaxies that are not dominated by active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Over this redshift range, we find significant increases (factors of 5-10) in the X-ray-to-optical mean luminosity ratio (L_X_/L_B_) and the X-ray-to-stellar mass mean ratio (L_X_/M_*_) for galaxy populations selected by L_B_ and M_*_, respectively. When analyzing galaxy samples selected via SFR, we find that the mean X-ray-to-SFR ratio (L_X_/SFR) is consistent with being constant over the entire redshift range for galaxies with SFR=1-100M_sun_/yr, thus demonstrating that X-ray emission can be used as a robust indicator of star formation activity out to z 1.4. We find that the star formation activity (as traced by X-ray luminosity) per unit stellar mass in a given redshift bin increases with decreasing stellar mass over the redshift range z=0.2-1, which is consistent with previous studies of how star formation activity depends on stellar mass. Finally, we extend our X-ray analyses to Lyman break galaxies at z 3 and estimate that L_X_/L_B_ at z 3 is similar to its value at z=1.4.
