Using the largemultiwavelength data set in theChandra/SWIRE Survey (0.6 deg in the LockmanHole), we show evidence for the existence of highly obscured (Compton-thick) AGNs, estimate a lower limit to their surface density, and characterize their multiwavelength properties. Two independent selection methods based on the X-ray and infrared spectral properties… (More)
