  • We present the properties of X-ray detected dust obscured galaxies (DOGs) in the Chandra deep field south. In recent years, it has been proposed that a significant percentage of the elusive Compton-thick (CT) active galactic nuclei (AGN) could be hidden among DOGs. This type of galaxy is characterized by a very high infrared (IR) to optical flux ratio ( f 24 μ m / f R > 1000), which in the case of CT AGN could be due to the suppression of AGN emission by absorption and its subsequent re… CONTINUE READING
