FastSound Catalog Data
The latest version of the FastSound emission line catalog is here. See README.txt in the package for more explanation. These catalogs are described in detail by our Paper II. You can use these catalog data freely for your scientific work, but the FastSound Paper I and Paper II must be referenced in your publications using these.

the proposal
Note that the survey plan has been changed from that described in the proposal. Most importantly, the project now uses the high-resolution (HR) mode of FMOS for wavelength coverage of 1.45-1.65 um, while the original plan was to use the low-resolution (LR) mode covering the full FMOS wavelength (0.9-1.8 um). This is because we can complete the survey with significantly shorter time thanks to the better throughput of the HR mode, at the sacrifice of wavelength coverage.
