Abstract (from CDS):

We show that measures of star formation rates (SFRs) for infrared galaxies using either single-band 24 µm or extinction-corrected Paα luminosities are consistent in the total infrared luminosity = L(TIR) ∼ 1010 Lrange. MIPS 24 µm photometry can yield SFRs accurately from this luminosity upward: SFR(M/yr) = 7.8x10–10 L(24 µm, L) from L(TIR) = 5x 109 L to 1011 Land SFR = 7.8x10–10 L(24 µm, L)(7.76x10–11 L(24))0.048 for higher L(TIR). For galaxies with L(TIR) ≥ 1010 L, these new expressions should provide SFRs to within 0.2 dex. For L(TIR) ≥ 1011 L, we find that the SFR of infrared galaxies is significantly underestimated using extinction-corrected Paα (and presumably using any other optical or near-infrared recombination lines). As a part of this work, we constructed spectral energy distribution templates for eleven luminous and ultraluminous purely star forming infrared galaxies and over the spectral range 0.4 µm to 30 cm. We use these templates and the SINGS data to construct average templates from 5 µm to 30 cm for infrared galaxies with L(TIR) = 5x 109 to 1013 L. All of these templates are made available online.
