An Hst/wfpc2 Snapshot Survey of 2mass-selected Red Qsos


Using simple infrared color selection, the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) has found a large number of red, previously unidentified, radio-quiet quasi-stellar objects (QSOs). Although missed by UV/optical surveys, the 2MASS QSOs have KS-band luminosities that are comparable to “classical” QSOs. This suggests the possible discovery of a previously… (More)
