Abstract: We plan to make a Suprime-Cam survey for Lyman-α emitters (LAE) at z ∼ 7.3 in the Subaru Deep Field using a new filter NB1006 (λc=1004nm, δλ=21nm) and new red-sensitive CCDs. This would be the ultimate survey feasible with Si-CCDs to break the current limit of the most distant galaxy with secure spectroscopic redshift measurement, IOK-1 at z=7.0 (Iye et al. 2006). The evolution of the Ly-α and UV luminosity functions of LAE population from z=5.7 through z=6.6, 7.0, up to z=7.3 studied by a controlled data set will provide an important constraint on the cosmic reionization history.
