A rich bounty of AGN in the 9 deg 2 Boötes survey : high-z obscured AGN and large-scale structure

We use observations from the 9 square degree multiwavelength survey in Boötes to identify hundreds of obscured active galactic nuclei (AGN) with high redshifts (z > 0.7), luminosities (Lbol > 10 45 ergs s), and moderate obscuring columns (NH > 10 22 cm), and to measure the clustering properties of X-ray AGN at z > 1. In the Boötes region, shallow (5 ks… CONTINUE READING
