Abstract (from CDS):

This paper presents the result of Hα imaging for luminous and ultraluminous infrared galaxies. It is a complete subsample of the Great Observatories All-sky LIRG Survey (GOALS) with decl. >= -30°, and consists of 148 galaxies with log(LIR/L) >= 11.0. All the Hα images were carried out using the 2.16 m telescope at the Xinglong Station of the National Astronomy Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), during the year from 2006 to 2009. We obtained the pure Hα luminosity for each galaxy and corrected the luminosity for [N II] emission, filter transmission, and extinction. We also classified these galaxies based on their morphology and interaction. We found that the distribution of star-forming regions in these galaxies is related to this classification. As the merging process advanced, these galaxies tended to have a more compact distribution of star-forming regions, higher LIR, and warmer IR-color (f60/f100). These results imply that the degree of dynamical disturbance plays an important role in determining the distribution of a star-forming region.
