AbstractWe present the size-luminosity relation (SLR) for disk galaxies observed in eight clusters from the ESO Distant Cluster Survey (EDisCS). These clusters, at redshifts 0.4 < z < 0.8, were observed with the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys. While we observe a change in the SLR with redshift, namely that there is an absence of low surface brightness galaxies at high redshift, we demonstrate that this could be a product of selection effects and thus is not a confirmation of evolution. We also compare the SLR for cluster and field galaxies in each redshift bin and see no significant effects of environment on the SLR.
