Rosdahl et al. (2022) accepted for publication

“LyC escape from SPHINX galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization” by Rosdahl et al. has been accepted for publication in MNRAS. The paper explores correlations of the escape fraction of LyC radiation, fesc, with various galaxy properties in tens of thousands of SPHINX galaxies and how fesc evolves with redshift.  The escape fraction is found to fluctuate enormously in individual galaxies due to its regulation by stellar feedback. It is found to be highest in intermediate-mass, metallicity, and luminosity galaxies and drops strongly for the most massive, metal-rich, and brightest galaxies. The global average fesc is found to drop with time, in sync with a decreasing intensity of star formation in the expanding Universe.
