Results of optical identification of the ASCA Lynx Deep Survey are presented. Six X-ray sources are detected in the 2-7 keV band using the Solid-State Imaging Spectrometer in a ~20' × 20' field of view with fluxes larger than ~4 × 10-14 ergs s-1 cm-2 in the band. Follow-up optical spectroscopic observations were made, and five out of six sources are identified with active galactic nuclei/quasi-stellar objects (AGNs/QSOs) at redshifts of 0.5-1.3. We also identify two more additional X-ray… 
The discovery of a type-II quasar at z = 1.65 with integral-field spectroscopy ⋆
In this letter we report the serendipitous discovery of a genuine type-II quasar at z = 1.65 using integral-field data from VIMOS on the VLT. This is the first discovery of a type-II quasar at z > 1
X-ray source overdensities in Chandra distant cluster fields: a new probe to map the cosmic tapestry?
The first systematic study of the serendipitous X-ray source density around 10 high z (0.24 2σ per field, and >5σ overall) only on scales 8 � × 8 � and peculiar to cluster fields. The blank field
Detection of 20-30 h^-^1 Mpc-scale galaxy structures embedded in 100 h^-^1 Mpc-scale structures of quasars and MgII absorbers at z 0.8 and z 1.2
We report the finding of two large-scale structures of galaxies in a 40 x 35 arcmin 2 field embedded in a 25 deg 2 area where two 100 h -1 Mpc-scale structures of quasars and Mgll absorbers at z ≃
Two close large quasar groups of size ∼ 350 Mpc at
The Clowes & Campusano large quasar group (LQG) at  has been re-examined using the quasar data from the DR7QSO catalogue of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. In the 1991 discovery, the LQG impinged on
The luminosity dependence of the type 1 active galactic nucleus fraction
Using a complete, magnitude-limited sample of active galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, we show that the fraction of broad-line (type 1) active galactic nuclei (AGNs) increases with
