J/ApJ/640/603      Catalog of AGNs in the GOODS fields         (Treister+, 2006)

Spitzer number counts of active galactic nuclei in the GOODS fields. Treister E., Urry C.M., Van Duyne J., Dickinson M., Chary R.-R., Alexander D.M., Bauer F., Natarajan P., Lira P., Grogin N.A. <Astrophys. J., 640, 603-611 (2006)> =2006ApJ...640..603T
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Galaxies, IR Keywords: diffuse radiation - galaxies: active - infrared: galaxies Abstract: We present mid-infrared observations of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the GOODS fields, performed with the Spitzer Space Telescope. These are the deepest infrared and X-ray fields to date and cover a total area of 0.1°2. AGNs are selected on the basis of their hard (28keV) X-ray emission. Description: The GOODS-North and South fields, which cover ∼160arcmin2 each, were observed with the Spitzer Space Telescope as part of the GOODS Legacy program (PI: M. Dickinson). Observations were performed using the IRAC camera in the four available bands (3.6-8µm) and the MIPS instrument in the 24µm band. File Summary:

Note (1): Probability of random association assuming a Poissonian distribution of sources. Expression 1-exp(-nπd2) was used where n is the density of sources and d is the distance between the X-ray and infrared sources. Note (2): In units of erg/cm2/s. Note (3): Defined as (H-S)/(H+S) where H and S are the background-substracted counts in the Hard and Soft X-ray bands respectively. Note (4): Redshift type, defined as follows: S = Spectroscopic Redshift; P = Photometric Redshift; N = No redshift measured. Note (5): Optical classification, defined as follows: B = Broad line AGN; N = Narrow line AGN; G = Galaxy; U = Unknown.
