Mid-Infrared Selection of AGN with the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer. I. Characterizing WISE-Selected AGN in COSMOS
The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) is an extremely capable and efficient black hole finder. We present a simple mid-infrared color criterion, W1-W2 \geq 0.8 (i.e., [3.4]-[4.6] \geq 0.8,Expand

The Far- and Mid-Infrared/Radio Correlations in the Spitzer Extragalactic First Look Survey
Using the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Very Large Array (VLA), we present the first direct evidence that the well-known far-infrared/radio correlation is valid to cosmologically significantExpand

Mid-Infrared Selection of Active Galactic Nuclei with the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer. II. Properties of WISE-Selected Active Galactic Nuclei in the NDWFS Bootes Field
Stern et al. (2012) presented a study of WISE selection of AGN in the 2 deg 2 COSMOS field, finding that a simple criterion W1–W2�0.8 provides a highly reliable and complete AGN sample for W2<15.05,Expand

Star Formation and Extinction in Redshift z~2 Galaxies: Inferences from Spitzer MIPS Observations*
We use very deep Spitzer MIPS 24 ?m observations to examine the bolometric luminosities (Lbol) and UV extinction properties of more than 200 spectroscopically identified, optically selected (UnG) z ~Expand

Spitzer Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy of Infrared Luminous Galaxies at z ~ 2. I. The Spectra
We present the mid-infrared spectra obtained with the Spitzer IRS for 52 sources, selected as infrared luminous, z ≳ 1 candidates in the Extragalactic First Look Survey. The sample selection criteriaExpand

The First Hyper-Luminous Infrared Galaxy Discovered by WISE
We report the discovery by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) of the z = 2.452 source WISE J181417.9, the first hyperluminous source found in the WISE survey. Expand

Spitzer Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy of Infrared Luminous Galaxies at z~2. II. Diagnostics
We present mid-IR spectral decomposition of a sample of 48 Spitzer-selected ULIRGs spanning z ~ 1-3 and likely L_(IR) ~ 10^(12)-10^(13) L_⊙. Our study aims at quantifying the star formation andExpand

The Most Luminous Galaxies Discovered by WISE
We present 20 WISE-selected galaxies with bolometric luminosities L_bol > 10^14 L_sun, including five with infrared luminosities L_IR = L(rest 8-1000 micron) > 10^14 L_sun. These "extremely luminousExpand

The Spitzer Space Telescope Extragalactic First Look Survey: 24 μm Data Reduction, Catalog, and Source Identification
We present the reduction of the 24 μm data obtained during the first cosmological survey performed by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Images of a region of sky at moderately high Galactic latitude (l =Expand

We propose an "extended Schmidt law" with explicit dependence of the star formation efficiency (SFE = SFR/M _(gas)) on the stellar mass surface density (Σ_(star)). This relation has a power-law indexExpand
