Abstract

Ultra-deep ACS and WFC3/IR HUDF+HUDF09 data, along with the wide-area GOODS+ERS+CANDELS data over the CDF-S GOODS field, are used to measure UV colors, expressed as the UV-continuum slope beta, of star-forming galaxies over a range of luminosity (0.1L*(z=3) to 2L*(z=3)) at high redshift (z~7 to z~4).
