We present results from optical narrowband (λC. = 8150 Å and δλ. = 120 Å) observations of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) fields, using Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope. Using these narrowband data, we then perform a survey of Lyα emitters (LAEs) at z ∼ 5.7. The LAE survey covers an area of ≈320 arcmin2 and a comoving volume of ≃8.0 × 10 4 Mpc3. We found a total of 10 (GOODS-N) and 4 (GOODS-S) LAE candidates at z ≈ 5.7. We perform a study of the spatial distribution, space density, and star formation properties of the LAEs at z ∼5.7.
