In science:

Broad-band spectrum of a mid-IR source selected by ISOCAM LW3 in the Hubble Deep Field North (Aussel et al. 1999), compared with the SED’s of M82 (thick continuous line), Arp 220 (dashed line), and M51 (dotted line).
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
Estimates of the SF rate [based on the M82 and Arp 220 templates] and of the stellar mass [based on the M51 template] are indicated.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
Should one assume that the IR SED of the ultra-luminous galaxy Arp 220 is representative of the average spectrum of the evolving population detected by ISOCAM LW3, then the consequence would be that the observed far-IR counts and the CIRB intensity are far exceeded.

On the other hand, researchers studying nearby starburst galaxies generally use the term “super star clusters”, a term that was first introduced by Arp & Sandage (1985) when referring to the dominant cluster in the starburst dwarf galaxy NGC 1569.
The Formation of Star Clusters
Using our 450µm data and fluxes from the literature, we find that the 450µm/850µm flux ratio for the galaxies is remarkably constant and this holds from ob jects in which the star formation rate is similar to our own Galaxy, to ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGS) such as Arp 220.
