2018A&A...620A.112B Fraction of bolometric luminosity absorbed by dust in DustPedia galaxies Bianchi, S.; De Vis, P.; Viaene, S.; Nersesian, A.; Mosenkov, A. V.; Xilouris, E. M.; Baes, M.; Casasola, V.; Cassara, L. P.; Clark, C. J. R.; Davies, J. I.; De Looze, I.; Dobbels, W.; Galametz, M.; Galliano, F.; Jones, A. P.; Lianou, S.; Madden, S. C.; Trcka, A. Abstract. Aims: We aim to study the fraction of stellar radiation absorbed by dust, f_abs_, in 814 galaxies of different morphological types. The targets constitute the vast majority (93%) of the DustPedia sample, including almost all large (optical diameter larger than 1'), nearby (v <= 3000 km s^-1^) galaxies observed with the Herschel Space Observatory. Methods: For each object, we modelled the spectral energy distribution from the ultraviolet to the sub-millimetre using the dedicated, aperture-matched DustPedia photometry and the Code Investigating GALaxy Evolution (CIGALE). The value of f_abs_ was obtained from the total luminosity emitted by dust and from the bolometric luminosity, which are estimated by the fit. Results: On average, 19% of the stellar radiation is absorbed by dust in DustPedia galaxies. The fraction rises to 25% if only late-type galaxies are considered. The dependence of f_abs_ on morphology, showing a peak for Sb-Sc galaxies, is weak; it reflects a stronger, yet broad, positive correlation with the bolometric luminosity, which is identified for late-type, disk-dominated, high-specific-star-formation rate, gas-rich objects. We find no variation of f_abs_ with inclination, at odds with radiative transfer models of edge-on galaxies. These results call for a self-consistent modelling of the evolution of the dust mass and geometry along the build-up of the stellar content. We also provide template spectral energy distributions in bins of morphology and luminosity and study the variation of f_abs_ with stellar mass and specific star-formation rate. We confirm that the local Universe is missing the high f_abs_, luminous and actively star-forming objects necessary to explain the energy budget in observations of the extragalactic background light.
