The VIMOS UltraDeep Survey – a spectroscopic survey of high redshift galaxies
The VIMOS UltraDeep Survey (short: VUDS) is an observational
program to gain spectroscopic measurements for ~10,000 galaxies at high redshift , when the Universe was only between 1- 3 billion years old (today, the
Universe is 13.8 billion years old). This i...
