Submillimetre photometry of X-ray absorbed QSOs : their formation and evolutionary status

We present an analysis of the submillimetre/X-ray properti es of 19 X-ray absorbed, Comptonthin quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) selected to have luminos it es and redshifts which represent the peak of cosmic QSO activity. i.e. ∼ L∗ objects at1 < z < 3. Of these, we present new data for 11 objects not previously observed at submillimetr e wavelengths and… (More)
