Properties and star formation histories of high-z IR-detected galaxies with Herschel

Defense Thèse de doctorat : Univ. Genève, 2016 - Sc. 4952 - 2016/06/28
Abstract The Herschel Space Observatory (ESA) has offered an unprecedented view of the far infrared (FIR) emission of the Universe, granting astronomers access over more than 10 billion years of galaxy evolution. Star formation and the closely related dust creation are two central aspects that led the Universe to its present state of diversity and chemical enrichment. They also set the rules for observing the Universe and Herschel has been crucial to complete our coverage of the electromagnetic spectrum. Using a wealth of ancillary observational data along the FIR, this thesis focuses on the multi-wavelength characterization of IR-detected star-forming galaxies of intermediate to high redshift (1 to 4) in the aftermath of the Herschel mission. It is composed of three main stages, the central purpose of which is to derive the physical properties and constrain the star formation histories (SFHs) of the studied galaxies, via the analysis of their spectral energy distribution.
