J/AJ/131/666      Double-lobed radio quasars from the SDSS     (de Vries+, 2006)

Double-lobed radio quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. de Vries W.H., Becker R.H., White R.L. <Astron. J., 131, 666-679 (2006)> =2006AJ....131..666D
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; QSOs Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: statistics - quasars: emission lines Abstract: We have combined a sample of 44,984 quasars selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 3 (Cat. II/259) with the FIRST radio survey (Cat. VIII/71). Using a novel technique in which the optical quasar position is matched to the complete radio environment within 450", we are able to characterize the radio morphological make-up of what is essentially an optically selected quasar sample, regardless of whether the quasar (nucleus) itself has been detected in the radio.
