We report exploratoryChandraobservations of 14 high-redshift ( z=4.06–5.27), optically selected quasars. Ten of these quasars are detected, increasing the number of z> 4 X-ray detected quasars by 71%. Our detections include four of the five highest-redshift X-ray detected quasa rs to date, among them SDSSp J021043.17 −001818.4, the highest-redshift ( z = 4.77) radio-loud quasar detected in the X-ray band. The four un detected objects are the Broad Absorption Line quasars SDSSp J112956.10 −0… CONTINUE READING
