Deep 15 µm AKARI observations in the CDFS : estimating dust luminosities for a MIR-selected sample and for Lyman Break Galaxies and the evolution of Ldust /LU V with the redshift. Denis Burgarella

Abstract Deep observations of the Chandra Deep Field South have been secured at 15µm with AKARI/IRC infrared space telescope. From these observations, we define a sample of mid infrared-selected galaxies at 15µm and we also obtain 15µm flux densities for a sample of Lyman Break Galaxies at z ∼ 1 already observed at 24µm with Spitzer/MIPS. Number counts for the mid infrared-selected sample show a bump around a 15µm flux density of 0.2mJy that can be attributed to galaxies at z > 0.4 and at z > 0.8 for the fainter part of the bump. This bump seems to be shifted as compared to other works and a possible origin can be the Cosmic variance. Thanks to this dataset, we have tested, on the two above samples z ∼ 1, the validity of the conversions from monochromatic luminosities νfν at a rest-frame wavelength of 8µm by a comparison with total dust luminosities estimated from Spitzer rest-frame 12µm data that we use as a reference. We find that the 8µm dust luminosities are not all consistent and that some of them are better when compared to Ldust evaluated from longer wavelength luminosities. We also find that the rest-frame 8µm luminosities provide globally good estimates of Ldust . By comparing our data for the two samples to several libraries of spectral energy distributions, we find that models can explain the diversity of the observed f24 /f15 ratio quite reasonably for the MIR-selected sample and better for the LBG sample which are less dispersed than the MIR selection. However, when we analyse the luminosity dependence of this ratio, we find important discrepancies. Finally, we revisit the evolution of Ldust /LUV ratio with the redshift z by re-calibrating previous Ldust at z ∼ 2 based on our results and added new data points at higher redshifts. The decreasing trend is amplified as compared to the previous estimate. Key words: galaxies: formation - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: high redshift - infrared: galaxies cosmology: observations 1.
The star formation rate (SFR) of galaxies can be seen as some kind of Sesame that opens up the door of a quantitative understanding of the formation and the evolution of galaxies at all redshifts. It is one of the main tools of modern extragalactic astrophysics and astronomers world∗

wide have been looking for the best one(s) for several decades. All young stars in galaxies emit ultraviolet (UV) photons that can be collected by telescopes to estimate the SFR of these galaxies (e.g. Leitherer et al. 1999). However young stars might be embedded in dust that prevents part of the UV photons to reach our telescopes. These UV photons are scattered and absorbed by dust grains and reprocessed into infrared (IR) photons (e.g.

Buat & Xu 1996) which poses a problem to obtain a reliable SFR than can be seen as a total one. Several methods have been proposed to evaluate the total amount of SFR, including that part hidden in dust which cannot be measured by UV/optical telescopes. Meurer et al. (1999) proposed a version based on a correction for the dust attenuation that would be applied to the UV flux. This correction relies only on UV data and is estimated from the UV slope β (assuming fλ ∝ λβ ): the redder the UV slope the larger the correction. However, this method seems not to be fully reliable for any type of galaxies (Buat et al. 2005) or, at least, provides an estimate that is not very accurate. Usually, the calibration is performed from infrared far-IR (FIR) data but this happens not to be that simple because of various technological challenges: the low transparency of the atmosphere that implies to launch space telescopesl to observe above a few micrometers, the necessity to develop efficient detectors in this wavelength range and, of course, the mandatory cooling of these telescopes. Moving from the FIR to the mid-IR (MIR) looks like a good idea since the MIR emission is easier to measure but, again, there might be issues that need to be carefully checked. First, the MIR range can be subject to a contamination from stellar emission (especially when observing high redshift objects). Next, some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) emission features are present in this range that are correlated to the metallicity (Engelbracht et al. 2008). Then, most of the SFR relationships have been calibrated from (or at least mostly rely on) observations of local galaxies. We can wonder whether they are also valid at higher redshifts. Indeed, the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of galaxies can evolve with the redshift and we do not definitely know, for instance, whether or not low and high redshifts share the same PAH emissions in the MIR. Moreover, even when higher redshift objects have been accounted for (e.g. Bavouzet et al. 2008), these galaxies are not UV-selected galaxies. So, we have to check whether the relationships developped from IR samples are valid for UV-selected samples. Our objective, in this paper, is to use two samples of galaxies: one selected from deep 15µm observations of the Chandra Deep Field South (CDFS) and one sample of Lyman Break Galaxies (LBGs) at z ∼ 1 from GALEX (Burgarella et al. 2006 and Burgarella et al. 2007) to compare estimates of the dust luminosities (computed from rest-frame 8µm – i.e. AKARI observations at 15µm – using formulae provided by several authors) to the ones evaluated from Spitzer observed flux densities at 24µm (i.e. rest-frame 12µm at z = 1). Then, we will test the MIR SEDs through a comparison of the observed f24 /f15 flux ratio with several libraries of SEDs. Recent works by Reddy et al. (2006) and Burgarella et al. (2007) suggest that the dust-to-UV luminosity ratio (Ldust /LUV ) would decrease from z = 0 to z = 2 for a galaxy with a given luminosity Ldust . However, this effect is based on a comparison of datasets at different redshifts and we need to revisit this effect after checking the conversions from MIR luminosites to Ldust .
In Sect. 2, we will present the observations of the Chandra Deep Field South with AKARI/IRC camera through the L15 filter centered at 15µm. Sect. 3 will present the two samples that we will use in this paper. Then, we will test several calibrations of 8µm MIR luminosities to total dust luminosities. In Sect. 4, we will study the evolution of IR-to-UV luminosity ratio with the redshift by accounting for the results found in the paper. Finally, Sect. 5 will present the spectral energy distribution libraries that we will use. We will try to understand better the physics of the two galaxy samples by analysing the f24 /f15 ratio by a comparison with the models and templates. We assume a cosmology with H0 = 70 km.s−1 .M pc−1 , ΩM = 0.3 and ΩΛ = 0.7. 2.
Observations and Data Reduction
The AKARI satellite (Murakami et al. 2007) is a Japanese space mission dedicated to infrared astrophysics and was launched on board JAXA’s M-V8 Launch Vehicle on February 22, 2006 Japan Standard Time, JST. AKARI has a 68.5 cm cooled telescope with two focal plane instruments, the Far-Infrared Surveyor (FIS) (Kawada et al. 2007) and the Infrared Camera (IRC). The IRC consists of three cameras, the IRC-NIR, MIR-S & MIR-L covering 1.7– 26 µm in 9 bands with fields of view (FoV) of 10′ × 10′ (Onaka et al. 2007). Although the NIR/MIR-S cameras share the same field of view, the MIR-L camera is separated on the sky by 20 arcmin. AKARI observations are segregated into Large Surveys (LS) and guaranteed time Mission Programs. In addition, 10% of the total observation time was reserved for Open Time observations from ESA member institutes. In this work, we report on our Open Time program (IRLBG, P.I. D. Burgarella) to image the Chandra Deep Field South (CDFS: RA=53.0465, Dec=-27.8307, J2000) in the AKARI-IRC 15µm band (the L15 band covering the wavelength range 12.6 – 19.4µm). A total of 5 pointed observations were taken on the 31st January and 1st February 2007, using the IRC Astronomical Observing Template (AOT) designed for deep observations (IRC05) in the configuration b; L, corresponding to the L15 filter on the IRC-MIR-L camera (See Table 1). In this configuration, each pointing consists of approximately 10 exposure cycles. Each exposure cycle consists of a single short (0.6s) exposure frame and three long (19s) exposure frames. For deep imaging, the short exposure frames are insignificant and are often discarded. Note that, for a target centered on the FoV of the MIR-L, data is also taken in the NIR/MIR-S cameras, albeit offset by ∼20 arcmin with the FoV rotating around the MIR-L target position. The IRC05 AOT has no explicit dithering built into the AOT, therefore dithering is achieved by carrying out at least three pointed observations with this AOT at any given position. The dithering is achieved from the natural slight offset movement and slight rotation of the field of view between any pair of pointed observations The data were reduced by the standard IRC imaging pipeline (version 070911; see IRC Data User Manual by
Lorente et al. 2007). The pipeline corrects basic instrumental effects, performing dark subtraction, linearity correction, distortion correction and flat fielding. The superdark frame version 061109 and super flat version 070912 were used. In order to reduce the effect from the numerous hot pixels in the MIR-L detectors, hot pixels were identified and set to a very large numeric value such that they would be identified and removed as cosmic ray events in a later processing stage of the pipeline. The pixel values were then interpolated using the surrounding pixel values after the flat fielding. AKARI observations suffer from the effects of stray light from Earthshine and we have rejected any frames whose sky value had a measured standard deviation significantly larger than the mean between frames. Before combining the image from individual exposure frames for a single pointing, the frames have a median sky subtracted. Alignment of the frames for co-addition is usually determined by the position of bright point sources in each frame. However, in case of the MIR-L channel, the number of the point sources which had sufficient signal-to-noise were too few. Therefore, in order to align the MIR-L frames, we identified common objects in our MIR-L frame and in the Spitzer 24µm FIDEL image (http://ssc.spitzer.caltech.edu/legacy/). Spurious events, such as cosmic rays and electronic ghost images are removed at the co-addition stage using a 3 sigma clipping technique. For our data, given the large number of frames available for co-addition, we used the ccdclip option in the pipeline, where the detector noise performance is assumed as opposed to the default option sigclip where the noise performance is estimated from the data itself. The average rather than the median value among the frames, for each pixel was used in order to further improve the signal-to-noise of the final image. For every pointing a total of 30 exposure frames were co-added corresponding to a total exposure time of 570s. The five individual pointings were then combined to make the final image (Fig. 1). 3.
Definition of the MIR-selected and the Lyman Break Galaxy samples
The above AKARI image has been used to build two galaxy samples : a 15µm - selected (or equivalently MIRselected) sample defined from the photometry carried out on the image. We also measured the 15µm flux density of a sample of Lyman Break Galaxy (LBG) already defined from GALEX far ultraviolet (FUV) and near ultraviolet(NUV) images (Burgarella et al. 2007). 3.1.
The MIR - selected sample
The IRAF task DAOFIND has been used to identify a set of objects at a 3 − σ level above the background. To minimise confusion errors, we have integrated over an aperture of 2 pixels using the IRAF task PHOT and then, this value has been extrapolated (by a factor of 1.645 estimated from a PSF built from several point sources in the field) to an integrated flux density over 7.5 pixels to
match the recommendation of the AKARI / IRC manual by Lorente et al. (2007). Then, the calibration provided by (Lorente et al. 2007, i.e. fν = f7.5pixels × 1.48) has been applied to the data to get flux densities in µJy. Uncertainties on the flux densities are provided by PHOT. The estimate of the uncertainties also account for the 2.82 % error on the calibration constant quoted by Lorente et al. (2007). A list of 323 MIR - selected objects is created. Then, we have cross-correlated this sample with COMBO 17 (Wolf et al. 2004). Whenever several counterparts are found within the 2-arcsec radius, we select the best one by eye. The final sample that we use in this paper contains 239 objects that we also have cross-correlated with the 24µm-selected sample from Buat et al. 2008. The dataset is presented Table 2. The redshift distribution of this sample is shown in Fig. 2. It shows that galaxies up to z = 1.3 have been detected in the AKARI image. We select only objects at z ≤ 1.2 for this analysis because the quality of the highest redshift objects is too low. 3.2.
The z ∼ 1 Lyman Break Galaxy sample
Burgarella et al. (2007) defined a sample of 420 LBGs at 0.9 < z < 1.3 from ultraviolet images in the deep FUV and NUV exposures in the CDFS. In this paper, the authors find that this LBG sample shares its main characteristics with UV-selected samples. The LBG sample is formed of 80% not detected at 24µm (we called them Blue LBG = BLBGs) and 20% detected at 24µm (Red LBGs = RLBGs). Note that this classification is only representative of a difference in dust attenuation but the two of them share the same other properties in average (star formation history, morphology, etc.). However, those 20% of RLBGs contain 80% of the SFR density of LBGs. Burgarella et al. (2007) also claim that the UV - optical spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of the z ∼ 1 sample is very simular to the z ∼ 3 LBG sample selected by Forster-Schreiber et al. (2004). One of the initial motivation of the AKARI program is to check whether we could use the rest-frame ∼ 8µm flux density to estimate the hidden SFR of LBGs (or UVselected objects) at high redshift. Several authors have calibrated this rest-frame ∼ 8µm flux density into a hidden star formation rate by using z = 0 galaxies (e.g. Chary & Elbaz 2001, Takeuchi et al. 2005b, Reddy et al. 2006). We have used the coordinates from the z ∼ 1 LBG sample (Burgarella et al. 2007) as inputs for the IRAF task phot, in the same way as for the MIR-selected sample. After cleaning up the results from the photometry, 27 LBGs are found to have a 15µm flux density within the range 17.39 ≤ s15µm [µJy] ≤ 227.78. Out of these 28 LBGs, 9 have been detected at 24µm in the redshift range 0.9 ≤ z ≤ 1.2 used in the rest of the paper. This small LBG dataset only contain RLBGs which are IR-bright objects. Moreover, since these galaxies are LBGs, they have been detected in the GALEX near-UV bands. This insures that we are not using higher redshift galaxies as z ∼ 1 ones : at z ∼ 1.4, the Lyman break would be beyond the red limit of the near-UV filter and no flux at all should be detected

The 15µm number counts
In this section, we show the number counts of AKARI 15-µm sample in the CDFS. The total number of the 15µm galaxies in this field is 239. Cumulative number counts (NC) of these galaxies are shown in Fig. 3 (dotted irregular step function). The source density is converted to the units of [sr−1 ] in Fig. 3. We can see the effect of a possible incompleteness below a flux density of ∼ 100 µJy. We have examined the incompleteness of the source extraction by adding additional sources with various flux densities on the original observed AKARI 15-µm image (IRAF task ADDSTAR) and running the source extracting task (IRAF DAOFIND). We can estimate the incompleteness by measuring how much fraction of the added artificial sources are detected by the source extraction procedure. We show the result of this examination in Fig. 4. The open squares with error bars are the measures rate of retrieving artificial sources. To have a continuous function of the completeness or “missing rate”, we fit the measured value with a function of the Fermi-Dirac form, f (S15 ) =
where we found that SC = 57.3 and φ = 21.1. By the intersection of this function and 0.8 (horizontal line in Fig. 4), we found that the 80-% flux completeness limit is 85 µJy. With eq. 1, we can correct the raw NC and obtain the completeness-corrected NC. The blue regular step function in Fig. 3 is the corrected NC. Based on the integrated NC, we obtain the differential NC in a standard manner. We show the Euclideannormalized differential NC in Fig. 5, i.e., dN/dS15 multiplied by S15 2.5 . The open triangles represent the raw differential NC from our CDFS dataset and red diamonds represent results from Wada et al. (2007) in the NEP. The errors are Poissonian. Again, with eq. 1, we can correct the incompleteness effect. The open squares in Fig. 5 show the corrected differential NC. Error bars are calculated assuming Poissonian fluctuations in the original counts, and multiplied the incompleteness for those with corrected counts. The vertical dotted line is the same as Fig. 3. As we can see, both differential NC are consistent but show a variation around the peak of CDFS observations and the AKARI Performance Verification (PV) one. However, the cosmic variance in the CDFS (GOODS, to be precise) is estimated to be at least 60 % in densityrelated measurements (Somerville et al. 2004). Since the area is smaller than the whole GOODS area, we should have larger variance both in CDFS 15µm and in the PV field. In addtiion, is known that the CDFS hosts clusters

at z ∼ 0.7 (e.g. Adami et al. (2005)). So, the observed discrepancy would not be statistically significant with respect to the cosmic variance (especially at 15µm i.e. 7µm rest-frame at z ∼ 1 which is sensitive to any star formation in the clusters) and to other datasets presented in Figures 12 and 13 from Wada et al. (2007). Quite surely we are observing the same population of galaxies as they do. The most prominent feature of the differential NC is the bump seen around a flux density of 200 µJy. In order to see what population consists of this bump, we divide the differential counts into galaxies with three redshfit bins: 0 < z < 0.4, 0.4 < z < 0.8, and 0.8 < z. We show the subdivided differential counts in Fig. 6. The smallest open squares, intermediate ones, and the largest ones represent galaxies at 0 < z < 0.4, 0.4 < z < 0.8, and z > 0.8, respectively. The broken solid line is the total differential NC, the same as shown in Fig. 5. It is clear that the bump is dominated by galaxies with z > 0.4. Especially, the fainter part of the bump consists of galaxies at z > 0.8. This may mean that galaxy population observed at 15 µm experienced a significant evolution, as suggested by previous studies based on number counts (Pearson & RowanRobinson 1996; Pearson 2005; Takeuchi et al. 2001; Xu et al. 2001). 5. 5.1.
SED Libraries Spectra, templates and models in the Mid Infrared
We have used several libraries of templates to be compared to the data. First, three SED libraries commonly used to analyse MIR properties of local and distant galaxies: those of Chary & Elbaz (2001) (CE), Dale & Helou (2002) (DH) and Lagache et al. (2004) (LDP). These differents sets have been developped and optimized for different purposes: the CE library reproduces the local correlations between different luminosities from 7 to 850 µm, the DH templates describe the infrared SEDs of local normal star forming galaxies as a function of a single parameter, f60 /f100 , and the LDP templates of starburst and normal galaxies are built and optimized to reproduce statistical quantities like number counts, redshift distributions and the cosmic infrared background. The original templates for starburst galaxies (Lagache et al. 2003) have been modified in the MIR to reproduce the new Spitzer number counts with a decrease of the amplitude of the 11 µm feature by a factor ∼ 2 (Lagache et al. 2004). The LDP templates for normal galaxies all exhibit the same shape and are only scaled in luminosity. They are similar to DH templates with intermediate f60 /f100 values and thus, moderate luminosities. So, we do not reproduce all of them here. We have also considered recent templates built from the low-resolution Spitzer IRS spectra. From their analysis of IRS spectra for 59 nearby galaxies Smith et al. (2007) have proposed five templates from 5 to 38 µm, one is a luminosity weighted average of all spectra, the other ones represent averages of spectra with different strengths of the features inside the PAH bands (weak AGNs are also included in the sample). To enlarge the range of
observed spectra we have also included in our set of templates the nine classes of spectra proposed by Spoon et al. (2007). Their analysis is based on the observation of a sample of AGNs, starburst galaxies together with LIRGs and ULIRGs. Their MIR templates exhibit very different spectral shapes from continuum dominated spectra for AGNs to spectra dominated by the 10 µm silicate trough and PAH-dominated starburst spectra. Last but not least, we have also included the starburst template of Brandl et al. (2006) obtained by averaging the IRS spectra of 13 nearby starburst galaxies. The different sets of templates are illustrated in Fig. 7 and Fig. 8 where a few representative spectra for each library are plotted. For the CE and LDP libraries (Fig. 7) we have chosen the templates corresponding to galaxies with Ldust equal to 1011 and 1012 L⊙. The DH templates are given as a function of f60 /f100 . For the purpose of our comparison between the differents libraries, it is convenient to attribute to them a total dust luminosity. At this aim, we follow Marcillac et al. (2006) who fitted a linear relation between the logarithms of Ldust and f60 /f100 valid for the nearby universe. We have plotted the templates with log(f60 /f100 )=-0.2 and log(f60 /f100 )=-0.1 which correspond respectively to a total dust luminosity of the order of 1011 and 1012 L⊙. The templates obtained from Spitzer/IRS spectra are plotted in Fig. 8: the luminosity-weighted average spectrum and one other spectrum (template 3) from Smith et al. (2007), the templates 1A (continuum dominated), 3B (prominent silicate absorption), 1C and 2C (PAH dominated) from Spoon et al. (2007) and the starburst template of Brandl et al. (2006). 5.2.
The rest-frame 8µm emission redshifted at z = 1 and z=2
Several paper provide a calibration of the rest-frame 8µm luminosity into a dust luminosity (e.g. Chary & Elbaz 2001, Takeuchi et al. 2005a, Reddy et al. 2006). Given the availability of deep 24µm observations, these data have been used to estimate dust luminosities at high redshifts (e.g. Reddy et al. 2006). However, if we wish to apply the z = 0 conversions to higher redshift galaxies, we must account for corrections because the Spitzer/IRAC 8µm filter at z = 0 does not sample exactly the same part of the SED than the AKARI 15µm filter or the Spitzer/IRS 16µm filter at z = 1 or than the Spitzer/MIPS 24µm filter at z = 2 (Fig. 9). Moreover, these corrections will depend on the SED of the observed galaxies. Corrections are evaluated by convolving several templates and spectra from Chary & Elbaz (2001), Dale & Helou (2002), Lagache et al. (2004), Smith et al. (2007), Spoon et al. (2007) and Brandl et al. (2006). By using several templates and observed SEDs, we aim at taking into account the variety of observed SEDs. The observed Ldust distribution extends from 109 to 1011.5 L⊙ , so only models in this luminosity range are used to build Fig. 10. The corresponding median corrections are listed in Tab. 4. We find that the dispersion in the correction factors (φf ilter ) is relatively low (a few percents) for each

filter and close to φf ilter = 1, which brings some confidence in using Ldust (8µm). The correction factors will be used to compare the different estimates of Ldust at various redshifts. The redshift range of our objects is 0.9 ≤ z ≤ 1.3. In this range, PAH features can move in and out of the filter. We need to check whether this can influence the results presented in this paper and, if so, what is the size of any effects. To perform this test, we have convolved SEDs from Dale & Helou (2002) and from Chary & Elbaz (2001) with the AKARI 15µm filter. Since all filters will sample the same rest-frame wavelength range, this should address our concern. The values (sz=0.9 − sz=1.1 )/sz=1.1 and (sz=1.3 −sz=1.1 )/sz=1.1 are computed and shown Tab. 5. SEDs from Chary & Elbaz (2001) provide somewhat larger relative change by about 16% as compared to the 5% from Dale & Helou (2002) SEDs. We can conclude that the redshift range is small enough to keep within the uncertainties even by assuming a single redshift. 6.
Testing the rest-frame 8µm luminosity conversions into total dust luminosity
Estimating the star formation rate of high redshift galaxies always is an issue, especially when one wishes to estimate the hidden star formation rate or, in other words the dust luminosity. Of course, if FIR data are available as for galaxies detected in IR surveys, the task is more straightforward since we are close to the maximum of the dust emission, but these data are, most often not
observed for ultraviolet-selected galaxies like LBGs. Even though 8µm luminosities are calibrated into star formation rates, we can wonder if we can apply these calibrations and, if so, what is the associated uncertainty. We directly compare in this paper calibrations for high redshift galaxies which are likely to share common physical characteristics in terms of dust temperature distribution, metallicity, PAH contribution, etc. Caputi et al. 2007 performed such a comparison at z = 2 on relationships derived by convolving templates with the transmission of the Spitzer MIPS-24µm band. Daddi et al. (2007), Papovich et al. (2007) also performed a similar job at z = 2. Here, we use a different approach : we use our LBG selected at 0.9 ≤ z ≤ 1.2 for which we have rest-frame 8µm data (from AKARI IRC 15µm-band observations) and rest-frame 12µm data (from Spitzer MIPS-24µm band observations). These LBGs have 11 ≤ LogLdust ≤ 12 which means that they are Luminous IR galaxies (LIRGs with 11 ≤ LogLdust ≤ 12). A direct comparison of the two estimates allows us to quantify the quality and the uncertainty of the former, after making the hypothesis that the latter provides a good estimate at z ∼ 1. The conversion is largely dependent on the assumptions made or the templates used (e.g. Le Floc’h et al. 2005). By using directly observed data, we wish to verify what the validity of Ldust (8µm) is to estimate Ldust on actual high redshift galaxies at z = 1. This work therefore bears some similarities with Marcillac et al. 2006 at z = 1 but our samples are difference and we

The smallest open squares represent the galaxies at 0 < z < 0.4, the intermediate ones are at 0.4 < z < 0.8, and the largest ones are 0.8 < z. The broken solid line is the total differential NC, the same as shown in Fig. 5. Clearly, the bump is dominated by galaxies with 0.4 < z.
Table 4. To use rest-frame 8µm conversions from monochromatic luminosities to Ldust , we must apply some corrections φf ilter to the photometry. The corrections (fνcorr = fνobs /φf ilter ) for z = 1 for galaxies observed in the AKARI/IRC L15 15µm filter and in the Spitzer/IRS 16µm filter and for z = 2 for galaxies observed in the Spitzer/MIPS 24µm filter are listed here.

We have computed the ratio of the flux densities in the AKARI/IRC L15 15µm filter using Dale & Helou (2002) and from Chary & Elbaz (2001) (sz=0.9 − sz=1.1 )/sz=1.1 and (sz=1.3 − sz=1.1 )/sz=1.1 to test if the influence of PAH moving with the redshift of the observed galaxies might change the observed flux densities and produce an effect only due to K-corrections.

add the LBG specificity. We define Ldust as the total infrared luminosity from 8µm to 1000µm. Another definition uses wavelengths in the range 5µm to 1000µm. Bavouzet et al. (2008) give the ratio L5−1000µm /L8−1000µm = 1.07 ± 0.04. In this paper, we prefer using an empirical approach in this paper by using conversions that are mainly based observed datasets and do not rely on (or at least minimize the use of) templates or models. Theefore, to estimate Ldust from monochromatic MIR lumininosities, we compute two estimates of Ldust at a rest-frame wavelength of 12µm : Chary & Elbaz (2001) and Takeuchi et al. (2005a). By using these two formulae, we show that our results are not very dependent on the assumed 12µm conversion and we assume that Ldust (12µm) can be used as a safe reference. Chary & Elbaz (2001) provide a formula estimated from a sample of local 300 IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample (Soifer et al. 1998). Almost all these galaxies are detected at all IRAS wavelengths from 12 to 100 µm, which means that they form a far-infrared selected sample dominated by relatively cool (i.e. Tdust ≈ 50K) dust galaxies. Chary & Elbaz (2001) relationship corresponds to :
1.094 Ldust = 0.89+0.38 −0.27 L12µm
Takeuchi et al. (2005a) also provide conversions from several mid- to far-infrared luminosities into total dust luminosities Ldust . The initial sample built by Takeuchi et al. (2005a) is extracted from the IRAS PSCz (Saunders et al. 2000) that contains 15411 galaxies with redshifts. Then, 1420 galaxies with good quality flux densities at all IRAS wavelengths were down-selected. Star forming quiescent, normal galaxies dominate this sample. However, the authors found that their relationship provide a good estimate for a wide range of spectral energy distributions. The conversion is estimated by comparing monochromatic luminosities with Ldust computed using Sanders et al. (1996) calibration (the four IRAS wavelengths are used) where Ldust is computed by fitting a single temperature dust emissivity model (with an emissivity ǫ = ν −1 ) to the flux in all four IRAS bands. Takeuchi et al. 2005a conversion (with a dispersion σ = 0.154) follows the relationship : LogLdust = 1.02 + 0.972LogL12µm
Then, for the conversion from 8µm monochromatic lu-

(2006) is represented by the blue solid line. All the spectra are normalized at 10 µm, see text for details on the choice of the templates
minosities to Ldust we made use of Reddy et al. (2006), Bavouzet et al. (2008) and Wu et al. (2005). Reddy et al. (2006) defined an optically-selected sample with spectroscopic redshifts at z ∼ 2. For these galaxies, X-ray data are available through stacking and we have indications that the X-ray luminosities are correlated to the total far-infrared ones (e.g. Rosa-Gonzalez et al. 2007) for galaxies with 8 ≤ LogLdust [L⊙ ] ≤ 12. X-ray luminosities are proxies for the total infrared luminosities and thy provide a good check for the conversion that is not dependent on templates. To quantify the relationship between 8µm luminosities and total infrared luminosities, Reddy et al. (2006) made use of Elbaz et al. (2002) data for a sample of 149 galaxies that contains ISO data and IRAS 60 and 100µm measurements. Reddy et al. 2006relationship is : Ldust = (1.24 ± 0.35)L8µm
Bavouzet et al. (2008) samples contain galaxies with spectroscopic redshifts and COMBO 17 photometric redshifts observed at 8µm, 24µm, 70µm and 160µm by Spitzer. This sample can be considered as a far-infrared selected sample with redshifts are up to z = 1, but most of them have lower redshifts in the range z ∼ 0.2 − 0.3. They have added 13 stacked data points that are similar to a mid-infrared selection and 3 stacked point from Zheng et al. (2007) that are representative of an optically-selected
sample. Bavouzet et al. (2008) integrated the spectral energy distributions in rectangles to avoid biases to estimate total dust luminosities. Finally, the relationship finally defined by Bavouzet et al. (2008) (with an uncertainty of 37 %) is : Ldust = 450.9 × (L8µm)0.83 .
Wu et al. (2005) exploited the Spitzer First Look Survey imaged by Spitzer IRAC and MIPS and also covered by the Sloan Digital Sky survey (Stoughton et al. 2002), which provides Hα fluxes for this galaxy sample. One of the advantges of having some spectroscopy is that narrow-lines AGNs can be removed from the sample. All the objects in this sample are star-forming galaxies. The Hα fluxes are corrected for dust attenuation computed from the Balmer decrement. A good correlation is observed between the 8µm luminosities and the Hα luminosities. To deduce the relationship between ν.f8µm and Ldust , we convert their star formation rate into LogLdust with Kennicutt (1998) SFR formula. Wu et al. (2005) relationship corresponds to : Ldust = 0.566L8µm

in Figs. 11 and 12 are not fully consistent and we can see differences on the resulting 8µm conversions into Ldust . We clearly observe a stratification of the 8µm conversions (as compared to the 12µm ones : Chary & Elbaz 2001 and Takeuchi et al. 2005a) from Reddy et al. (2006) that over estimate Ldust both for LBGs and for the AKARI sample to Bavouzet et al. (2008) conversion that provides globally the best estimate and to Wu et al. (2005) conversion that slighly under estimates Ldust . The conversion formula from Wu et al. (2005) is calibrated from Hα data corrected for dust attenuation using the Balmer decrement. Obtaining an under estimated Ldust is not unexpected since Hα observations might miss some deeply enshrouded emissions. We see a difference between the LBG and the MIRselected diagrams. While for the former, the slopes of all the conversions are close to 1 (see Tab. 6), they are shallower for the MIR selection. It is interesting to notice that the relationship is almost perfect between Chary & Elbaz (2001) and Bavouzet et al. (2008). Both of them provide the same Ldust within the uncertainties. On the other hand, the slope is shallower for the MIR-selected sample. The origin of this difference seems to be due to the extremes at low (Ldust ∼ 1011 L⊙) and high (Ldust ≥ 1012 L⊙ , i.e. ULIRGs) dust luminosities. Taking off high-Ldust galaxies in the fit does not change the slope which remains
significantly different from 1. To reach similar slopes, we have to also take off the lowest luminosity galaxies from the MIR sample. Part of the difference in the slope can be explained by the fact that LBGs at Ldust ∼ 1011 L⊙ have lower Ldust estimated from 8µm than the AKARI sample. A detailed analysis and a comparison to models will be performed in the next section devoted to the MIR SEDs and to the interpretation of the f24 /f15 flux ratio that might provide some explanation for this difference. 7.
The evolution of the Ldust /LU V ratio of ultraviolet-selected galaxies with the redshift
Burgarella et al. (2007) and Reddy et al. (2006) found a decrease of the Ldust /LUV ratio of ultraviolet-selected galaxies with the redshift from z = 0 to z = 2. However, since we found in the previous section that Reddy et al. (2006) over estimated Ldust , we must revisit the evolution of Ldust /LUV assuming another conversion. Note that with the updated calibration, the median and mean Ldust for Reddy et al.’s sample are respectively 1.4 1011 L⊙ and 1.4 1011 ± 4.3 1011 L⊙ . We also find in the previous section the conversion given by Wu et al. (2005) provides under estimated Ldust , probably because of some missing emission too deeply enshrouded in dust. We will therefore use Bavouzet et al. (2008) conversion instead of Reddy

et al. (2006) in the following to compute a new estimate of Ldust /LUV at z = 2. This new conversion means that Log Ldust decreases by −0.37 ± 0.05 for ultravioletselected galaxies in the luminosity range corresponding to LIRGs. The z = 1 Ldust /LUV was computed by Burgarella et al. (2007) by using Chary & Elbaz (2001) conversion and we are, therefore, in the optimum case where both estimates from 8µm and 12µm Ldust are fully consistent. Note that replacing Chary & Elbaz (2001) conversion by Takeuchi et al. (2005a) one would change Ldust estimated from the rest-frame 12µm luminosityes by −0.2dex. Fig. 13 updates the one presented in Burgarella et al. (2007). The change applied to Reddy et al. (2006) at z = 2 amplifies the decrease with the redshift. We have added one point at z ∼ 3 from Adelberger et al. (2000) estimated from their Fig. 11 at Ldust /LUV = 0.7 ± 0.7. The dust luminosity of their sample is about 1010 − 2.1012 L⊙ . Although the Ldust /LUV was estimated from the UV slope β (Meurer et al. 1999), Burgarella et al. (2007) suggests that it provides a rough order of magnitude that is a fair estimate for galaxies in an intermediate Ldust range (but with a large dispersion). Together with the addition of a point at z = 6.56 from the upper limit on the gravitational lens HCM 61 studied by Boone et al. (2007). It is important to notice that the dust luminosity of this very high redshift object is Ldust < 2.11011L⊙ . So, all the luminosities lie in the same range - mainly LIRGs. Fig. 13 seems to confirm the global decreasing trend with the redshift for these galaxies with dust luminosities lower than ULIRGs. If we follow the authors who suggest that the object is close to a detection, an exponential law is perhaps favored. 8.
Testing the MIR Spectral Energy Distributions with the f24 /f15 flux ratio
The bandpasses of the AKARI/IRC and Spitzer/MIPS filters are larger than the PAH features and do not allow us to perform a detailed analysis of the evolution with redshift of the MIR SEDs of galaxies. Nevertheles, we can check the consistency of the available libraries with our set of data since from z=0 to z=1.2 the IRC 15 µm and MIPS 24 µm filters encounter the PAH features (cf Fig. 9). Such an analysis may also help us to understand the different behaviors of the LBG and MIR-selected samples in the previous sections where the various calibrations of the 8 µm flux in bolometric flux are discussed. Following Marcillac et al. (2006) and Teplitz et al. (2005) we compare the observed 24 to 15 µm flux ratio f24 /f15 with the expected ones calculated to the templates presented in the previous section. The predicted fluxes are calculated by integrating the templates within the filter bandpasses. 8.1.
Variation of f24 /f15 with z
In Fig. 14 we compare the observed variation of f24 /f15 with z for both samples (15µm MIR selection and LBGs) with the predictions of the differents models presented in section 5. The ratio exhibits a large dispersion without
any significant trend. Error bars are overplotted in the sub-panel (c). The templates used for the comparison are chosen to sample a large range of luminosity and properties. From the CE and LDP libraries, we consider four templates corresponding to 109 , 1010 , 1011 and 1012 L⊙. Six values of f60 /f100 (0,-0.1,-0.2,-0.3,-0.4,-0.5) are selected from the DH library in order to cover a large range of Ldust values (from 5 108 to 4 1012 L⊙ according to the calibration of Marcillac et al. (2006), f60 /f100 increasing monotically with Ldust ) At z> 0.5 the DH and CE libraries are able to cover the range of observed values although some galaxies at z∼1 exhibit a f24 /f15 ratio lower than that predicted by the models. A substantial fraction of the galaxies detected at 15 and 24 µm are LIRGs, this is illustrated in Fig. 14 for z>0.9 galaxies (see the next section for the calculation of Ldust ). If we restrict the CE templates to Ldust > 1011 L⊙ , galaxies with f24 /f15 <∼ 1.5 and z>0.9 are not well represented by them : templates with a lower Ldust are needed to reach such low values of f24 /f15 which are observed for ∼ 30% of the MIR-selected galaxies with z > 0.9, this issue was already underlined by Teplitz et al. (2005) and will be re-discussed in the next section. The LDP templates predict lower observed ratios which can fit the lowest observed values but are unable to reproduce the bulk of the sample at z>0.5. Galaxies at z∼1 with a large f24 /f15 ratio can be explained either by a starburst template with a strong continuum together with PAHs (CE template with 1012 L⊙ , DH templates with log(f60 /f100 )=0,-0,1 also corresponding to galaxies with Ldust ∼ 1012 L⊙ ) or by a SED without PAHs and a power-law spectrum. This fitting degeneracy is also underlined by Marcillac et al. (2006) and Elbaz et al. (2005) The comparison with the IRS templates implies that the spectra of normal star forming galaxies from Smith et al. (2007) do not sample the whole set of data and are only able to reproduce the lowest observed values whereas the starburst template of Brandl et al. (2006) goes through the data. The different templates of Spoon et al. (2007) exhibit a larger dispersion for the evolution of f24 /f15 with z as expected since they sample extreme classes of objects. Templates dominated by the silicate absorption do not reproduce at all the general trend of the data: such galaxies are rarely found in a MIR selection up to z=1. The LBG sample exhibits less dispersed and lower values in average of f24 /f15 than the MIR-selected sample. Their behaviour is consistent with that predicted for galaxies fainter than 1012 L⊙ (CE templates) or with log(f60 /f100 ) < −0.1 (DH templates). The starburst template of Brandl et al. (2006) reproduces well the mean behaviour of the LBGs To summarize, starburst templates and SED libraries for bright IR galaxies (≥∼ 1011 L⊙ ) are globally consistent with most of the f24 /f15 ratios observed for MIR-selected at z>0.5. About ∼ 30% of these MIR-selected galaxies at z>0.9 exhibit values of f24 /f15 lower than those for starburst and IR bright galaxies and more consistent with

the ratios found for normal star forming galaxies and templates with a moderate luminosity, as well as with the LDP library. Nevertheless, most of these galaxies are LIRGs. LBGs at z∼1 exhibit intermediate f24 /f15 ratios not as large as those predicted for bright IR galaxies and galaxies with a strong continuum. They are more typical of starburst galaxies as expected for LBGs. For z<0.5 galaxies, IRS spectra of normal star-forming galaxies (Smith et al. 2007) or SED templates for moderately bright galaxies (CE, DH, LDP) reproduce the data quite well. Strong starbursts or continuum dominated distributions (Brandl et al. 2006; Spoon et al. 2007) are not consistent with most data. 8.2.
Variation of f24 /f15 with Ldust
As underlined above, the various libraries of templates can reproduce the full dynamics of the f24 /f15 ratio but not necessarily with the good luminosity. Therefore, we have to check their consistency in terms of luminosity.
Indeed, the CE and LDP templates vary as a function of LIR and the parameter characterizing the DH templates, f60 /f100 , can be roughly related to an IR luminosity (Marcillac et al. 2006). As discussed in Sect. 5, the total IR luminosities Ldust of the observed galaxies are estimated using empirical relations between Ldust and a monochromatic mid-IR luminosity calibrated on local samples from Takeuchi et al. 2005a. Practically, calibrations are available for restframe data at 12 and 15 µm. Therefore we will restrict our analysis to three redshift bins: 0.2 < z < 0.4 (fluxes measured with the IRC 15 µm filter at z = 0.3 correspond to 12 µm rest-frame since the isophotal wavelength of the L15 filter is 15.6 µm), 0.5 < z < 0.7 and 0.9 < z < 1.1 (fluxes measured at z = 0.6 and z = 1 with the MIPS 24 µm filter (isophotal wavelength 23.7µm) correspond respectively to 15µm and 12µm rest-frame). Using the relations of Chary & Elbaz (2001) will give only slightly different luminosities which will not have any influence on the following

analysis. In Fig. 15 are plotted the observed ratios together with the predictions of the CE, DH and LDP models for the three redshift bins. As expected we select brighter galaxies when z increases. At low z (0.2 < z < 0.4) the predictions of the models are consistent with a large fraction of the data but 5 out of the 17 galaxies observed in this redshift bin exhibit ratios larger than those predicted (even when error bars are accounted for). Such large values are obtained for IRS spectra of strong starburst galaxies as can be seen in Fig.14 (panels a and c). At this redshift the observed f24 /f15 corresponds to f18 /f12 in the restframe of the galaxies: these galaxies are likely to exhibit a strong continuum implying a high flux at 18 µm. For the medium redshift bin (0.5 ≤ z ≤ 0.7) the models are found globally consistent with the data given the error bars on the observed ratios. One galaxy is found very discrepant, its ratio is only consistent with a template dominate by a strong silicate absorption (Fig.14 (panel a)). At high z (0.9 < z < 1.1), both MIR-selected galaxies and LBGs are considered since 9 LBGs are detected in our AKARI image in the redshift bin 0.9 ≤ z ≤ 1.1. The CE, DH and LDP models bracket the observations. Given the large dispersions of the observed values the CE and DH templates can be considered as globally consistent with the data confirming the global reliability of the CE relations to estimate Ldust from the monochromatic luminosity at 8 and 12 µm rest-frame (see Sect. 6). Half of the sample (9/21) correspond to f24 /f15 < 1.5 whereas the CE and DH models predict higher ratios (f24 /f15 > 1.5) for the observed range of luminosity; the LDP models are consistent with the lowest observed ratios. At z∼1 the observed f24 /f15 corresponds to f12 /f8 , as underlined by Elbaz et al. (2005) such low values of this ratio can only be reproduced with a strong PAH emission feature at 7 µm. To explain the large variations of this ratio one might invoke the relative strengths of the PAH features or the contribution of the underlying continuum. On the one hand, the galaxies with a low f24 /f15 (f24 /f15 <∼ 1.5) may have a weaker 12 µm PAH emission feature as compared to the PAH feature at 7µm. Indeed Lagache et al. (2004) modified the MIR templates in this way and their templates can explain the most extreme values of our sample. On the other hand, the CE and DH models for bright galaxies (as those observed at z∼1) exhibit a high continuum which contributes to large predicted values of f24 /f15 without a strong variation of the PAH feature at 12 µm; in Fig. 15 the CE and DH templates of lower luminosity exhibit a f24 /f15 more consistent with the data. In the same way, Smith et al. (2007) templates have a rather low continuum and fit the observed low ratios (Fig.14 (panel b)). Teplitz et al. (2005) also found that a ULIRG spectrum is not consistent with the variation of the 24 and 16 µm fluxes observed with Spitzer up to z∼1.5 and that local star-forming or starburst galaxies are more representative of the high z galaxies detected by Spitzer. At z∼0.7 Zheng et al. (2007) reached a similar conclusion that luminous IR galaxies have relatively low temperature, lower than that of local galaxies of same luminosity which implies a
low contribution of the continuum. The LBGs at z = 1 also exhibit values of the f24 /f15 ratio characteristic of the presence of PAH features in their spectra, they appear less dispersed than the IR selected galaxies as already underlined. The CE and DH templates reproduce rather well the mean values confirming the good agreement found in Sect. 5 when Ldust was calculated using the CE calibrations at 12/mum (restframe). Although the sub-sample considered here is small (9 objects) it seems that f24 /f15 is found higher in LBGs with Ldust < 1011 L⊙ than for LBGs with Ldust > 1011 L⊙, this trend is not seen within the MIR-selected sample and most of the MIR-selected galaxies with Ldust < 1011 have a f24 /f15 ratio lower that those of LBGs. This effect may explain the lower Ldust (8µm) estimated for LBGs than for the MIR-selected galaxies for a given Ldust (12µm in Figs. 11 and 12 (with Ldust < 1011 L⊙ . This different behaviour may be at the origin of the slight differences found in the Sect. 6 when the various calibrations of Ldust were compared for both samples. 9.
This paper is based on the observations of the Chandra Deep Field South carried out at 15µm with AKARI/IRC. We have applied the standard pipeline to process the frame and performed some hotometry to define two galaxies samples with MIR flux densities at λ = 15µm. A first sample is selected at 15µm directly (MIR-selected sample) and a second one is based on the mesurement of the 15µm flux density of an initial sample of 420 LBGs at z ∼ 1 built by Burgarella et al. 2007 with available 24µm flux densities from Spitzer/MIPS. The main results of this work are : 1) the number counts evaluated from the mid infrared-selected are consistent with previous works from deep imaging at 16µm by Teplitz et al. (2005) and Wada et al. (2007). We observe a bump around 200µJy that might be shifted to fainter fluxes with respect to other works because of Cosmic variance. By dividing the differential counts into several sub-samples at different redshifts, we find that the bump is mainly due to galaxies at z > 0.4 and at z > 0.8 for the fainter part of the bump. 2) We have compared the dust luminosities estimated from several estimators of the monochromatic MIR luminosities at a rest-frame wavelength of 8µm with Ldust estimated from MIPS data at a rest-frame wavelength of 12µm assumed to be the reference. We find some discrepancies between the estimates. Bavouzet et al. (2008) and, to some extent, Wu et al. (2005) seems to provide dust luminosities consistent with the two Ldust estimates from Chary & Elbaz (2001) and Takeuchi et al. (2005a). 3) A comparison of the f24 /f15 ratio ratio with several templates and observed SEDs is performed that suggest a global consistency of the observed ratios albeit there might be an issue with the luminosity dependence of this ratio. 4) By making use of the best conversion of the MIR luminosity at z = 2, we have revisited the evolution of the Ldust /LUV ratio with the redshift and we find a more drastic decrease of
