Abstract

Since 2014, the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument generates hyperspectral datacubes (300 by 300 pixels by 3600 wavelength in the visible range) of the deep Universe. One of the main purposes of the wide field spectrograph MUSE is to analyse galaxies and their surroundings by the study of their spectra. Galaxy spectra are composed of a continuum emission and of sparse emission (or absorption) peaks. On the contrary surrounding gas only contains peak such as the Lyman alpha emission line. Several methods are developed here to detect the gas signature as far as possible in the galaxy surroundings. These methods combined clustering approaches and several pre-processing steps.
