Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Based on optical and HI imaging of SBS 1543+593, a galaxy at z = 0.009 which is seen along the line of sight towards the high redshift QSO HS 1543+5921 (z = 0.807), we argue that low surface brightness galaxies could be responsible for the Damped Lyα lines which are seen in quasar spectra.
