[129.04] Star Formation Rates in the NICMOS Hubble Deep Field

The deep NICMOS observations of a portion of the northern Hubble Deep Field added two additional fluxes to the existing four optical fluxes. Using these six fluxes we determine both the redshift and the extinction by photometric template matching techniques. With values for both the redshift and the extinction the extinction corrected star formation rate for the region is calculated. This value will be compared with existing determinations of the star formation rate in Hubble Deep Field.

In addition we calculate the expected far infrared emission from the sources in our field. Both the total re-emitted light and the expected flux in the SCUBA 850 micron band are calculated.

This work is funded in part by NASA grant NAG 5-3042 and utilized observations with the NASA.ESA Hubble Space Telescope obtained at the Space Telescope Science Institute operated by AURA under NASA contract NAS-26555.
