We find that 25% of these low mass/low SFR galaxies are rotation-dominated, while the majority of our sample shows no velocity gradient. When combining our data with other surveys, we find that the fraction of rotation-dominated galaxies increases with the stellar mass, and decreases for galaxies with a positive offset from the main sequence (higher specific star formation rate). We also investigate the evolution of the intrinsic velocity dispersion, sigma0, as a function of the redshift, z, and stellar mass, M*, assuming galaxies in quasi-equilibrium (Toomre Q parameter equal to 1). From the z-sigma0 relation, we find that the redshift evolution of the velocity dispersion is mostly expected for massive galaxies (log(M*/M)>10). We derive a M*-sigma0 relation, using the Tully-Fisher relation, which highlights that a different evolution of the velocity dispersion is expected depending on the stellar mass, with lower velocity dispersions for lower masses, and an increase for higher masses, stronger at higher redshift. The observed velocity dispersions from this work and from comparison samples spanning 0<z<3.5 appear to follow this relation, except at higher redshift (z>2), where we observe higher velocity dispersions for low masses (log(M*/M)∼9.6) and lower velocity dispersions for high masses (log(M*/M)∼10.9) than expected. This discrepancy could, for instance, suggest that galaxies at high redshift do not satisfy the stability criterion, or that the adopted parametrization of the specific star formation rate and molecular properties fail at high redshift. Description: We initiated KLENS in 2015 in P95 with the K band Multi Object Spectrograph (KMOS; Sharples et al., 2013Msngr.151...21S). KMOS has 24 arms of 14x14-spaxels. Each spaxel has 0.2"x0.2", which gives a global field of view of 2.8"x2.8" for each arm. Observations were carried out in the H and K bands, which have a typical spectral resolution of R∼4000 and R∼4200, respectively. Each pointing had an exposure time of 300s and we used an object-object-sky-object-object dither pattern. The sky frames were obtained by applying an offset to a clear sky position. The observations were taken in good conditions with a seeing around 0.6" in the H and K bands. The total on-source exposure time in the H band were 2.3h for both clusters. In the K band, the targets were observed during 8h and 10h on-source for MACS1206-08 and AS1063, respectively. Here are the reduced data fits files of the galaxies presented in the paper.
