  • The first black hole seeds, formed when the Universe was younger than ∼500 Myr, are recognized to play an important role for the growth of early (z ∼ 7) supermassive black holes. While progresses have been made in understanding their formation and growth, their observational signatures remain largely unexplored. As a result, no detection of such sources has been confirmed so far. Supported by numerical simulations, we present a novel photometric method to identify black hole seed candidates in… CONTINUE READING
