Welcome to the Hubble Deep UV (HDUV) Legacy Survey

The HDUV is a legacy program using the Hubble Space Telescope to obtain deep UV images of the central parts of the two GOODS fields, which was approved in HST Cycle 22. Our program will build on existing WFC3/UVIS data to obtain deep images at 250-350 nm (in F275W and F336W). These data will provide the first complete census of low-luminosity star-forming galaxies at z~0.5-2 and enable a wealth of research by the community. This includes measuring the physical properties of sub-L* galaxies, and characterizing resolved stellar populations to decipher the build-up of the Hubble sequence from sub-galactic clumps.

To ensure these legacy data are fully exploited, we are releasing high-level science data products to the community. The first epoch v0.5 reduced data are already available on our Data Products page!

The first exposures for our program were taken on Nov 25, 2014: 5 orbits of F275W data. These already revealed star-forming regions in intermediate redshift galaxies. A first example of a few galaxies are shown below. The full raw data from our program are public immediately and can be downloaded from the STScI HST archive (link).

The current survey status and raw data are available from STScI:
