Abstract

We present early results of the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) observations of gravitationally lensed galaxies. The systems were discovered by Herschel Space Observatory in large area maps conducted by the Herschel-ATLAS team and typically comprise a foreground optically-bright lensing galaxy and a background submm-bright lensed galaxy. The SALT observations are aimed at determining the redshifts of the lensing galaxies and exploiting them to characterize the individual lensing systems and the sample, in conjunction with observations at other international telescopes.
