Mapping Lyman continuum escape in Tololo 1247-232.


Abstract (from CDS):

Low-redshift, spatially resolved Lyman continuum (LyC) emitters allow us to clarify the processes for LyC escape from these starburst galaxies. We use Hubble Space Telescope (HST) WFC3 and ACS imaging of the confirmed low-redshift LyC emitter Tol 1247-232 to study the ionization structure of the gas and its relation to the ionizing star clusters. We perform ionization parameter mapping (IPM) using [O III] λλ4959, 5007 and [O II] λ3727 imaging as the high- and low-ionization tracers, revealing broad, large-scale, optically thin regions originating from the center and reaching the outskirts of the galaxy, consistent with LyC escape. We carry out stellar population synthesis modeling of the 26 brightest clusters using our HST photometry. Combining these data with the nebular photometry, we find a global LyC escape fraction of fesc = 0.12, with uncertainties also consistent with zero escape and all measured fesc values for this galaxy. Our analysis suggests that, similar to other candidate LyC emitters, a two-stage starburst has taken place in this galaxy, with a 12 Myr old, massive central cluster likely having precleared regions in and around the center and the second generation of 2-4 Myr old clusters dominating the current ionization, including some escape from the galaxy.
