Abstract (from CDS):

We report new deep observations obtained with the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA) aimed at investigating the [CII]158 µm line and continuum emission in three spectroscopically confirmed Lyman break galaxies at 6.8 < z ≤ 7.1, i.e. well within the re-ionization epoch. With star formation rates of SFR ∼ 5-15Myr- 1 these systems are much more representative of the high-z galaxy population than other systems targeted in the past by millimetre observations. For the galaxy with the deepest observation we detect [CII] emission at redshift z = 7.107, fully consistent with the Ly α redshift, but spatially offset by 0.7arcsec (4 kpc) from the optical emission. At the location of the optical emission, tracing both the Ly α line and the far-UV continuum, no [CII] emission is detected in any of the three galaxies, with 3σ upper limits significantly lower than the [CII] emission observed in lower redshift galaxies. These results suggest that molecular clouds in the central parts of primordial galaxies are rapidly disrupted by stellar feedback. As a result, [CII] emission mostly arises from more external accreting/satellite clumps of neutral gas. These findings are in agreement with recent models of galaxy formation. Thermal far-infrared continuum is not detected in any of the three galaxies. However, the upper limits on the infrared-to-UV emission ratio do not exceed those derived in metal- and dust-poor galaxies.
