We report spectroscopic confirmations of 15 Ly alpha galaxies at z similar to 7, implying a spectroscopic confirmation rate of similar to 80% on candidates selected from the Ly alpha Galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization (LAGER), which is the largest (24 deg(2)) survey aimed at finding Ly alpha emitters (LAEs) at z similar to 7 and uses deep narrowband imaging from the Dark Energy Camera at CTIO. LAEs at high redshifts are sensitive probes of cosmic reionization, and narrowband imaging is a robust and effective method for selecting a large number of LAEs. In this work, we present results from the spectroscopic follow-up of LAE candidates in two LAGER fields, COSMOS and WIDE-12, using observations from Keck/LRIS. We report the successful detection of Ly alpha emission in 15 candidates. Three of these in COSMOS have matching confirmations from a previous spectroscopic follow-up and are part of the overdense region, LAGER-z7OD1. Two other candidates that were not detected with LRIS have prior spectroscopic confirmations from Magellan. Including these, we obtain a spectroscopic confirmation success rate of similar to 80% for LAGER LAE candidates. Thorough checks were performed to reject the possibility of these detections being foreground emission resulting with a probability of, at most, one contaminant. We do not detect any other UV nebular lines in our LRIS spectra, apart from Ly alpha. We estimate a 2 sigma upper limit for the ratio of N v/Ly alpha, f (NV)/f (Ly alpha ) less than or similar to 0.27. Including confirmations from this work, a total of 33 LAE sources from LAGER are now spectroscopically confirmed. LAGER has more than doubled the sample of spectroscopically confirmed LAE sources at z similar to 7.
