Title: Resolved Molecular Gas and Star Formation Properties of the Strongly Lensed z = 2:26 Galaxy SDSS J0901+1814

Abstract

We present 100 resolution ( 2 kpc in the source plane) observations of the CO(1{0), CO(3{2), H, and [N ii] lines in the strongly-lensed z = 2:26 star-forming galaxy SDSS J0901+1814. We use these observations to constrain the lensing potential of a foreground group of galaxies, and our source-plane reconstructions indicate that SDSS J0901+1814 is a nearly face-on (i 30) massive disk with r1=2 & 4 kpc for its molecular gas. Using our new magnication factors (tot 30), we nd that SDSS J0901+1814 has a star formation rate (SFR) of 268+63
