  • Combining radio observations with optical and infrared color selection, demonstrated in our pilot study to be an efficient selection algorithm for finding red quasars, we have obtained optical and infrared spectroscopy for 120 objects in a complete sample of 156 candidates from a sky area of 2716 deg^2. Consistent with our initial results, we find that our selection criteria (J - K > 1.7, R - K > 4.0) yield a ~50% success rate for discovering quasars substantially redder than those found in… CONTINUE READING
