" Searching for z- and Y-dropout QSOs in UKIDSS-UDS and VIKING fields "
(National Taiwan University)
One of the goals of the HSC survey is to search for high redshift QSOs. By combining near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared surveys with the HSC survey, we aim to search for z>6.7 QSOs. Because the HSC survey at Y is usually much deeper than other wide-area NIR surveys. Taking advantage of this, we tried the followings: We first utilized the deep NIR survey, UKIDSS-UDS (JAB=24.9; 5-sigma) to search for z-dropout sources (detected in HSC-Y in wide layer and longer UKIDSS bands, and not detected in all shorter HSC bands). We then utilized wide-field VIKING survey to search for Y-dropout sources (detected in VIKING-J, H, and K bands, and not detected in HSC-Y in wide layer). In this talk, I will present my results, and compare my result with the bayesian probability used by HSC high-z quasar search team.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
