We report the discovery of 626 new oscillating red giants in our sample, in addition to 897 oscillators that were previously characterized by Hekker et al. from one quarter of Kepler data. Our sample increases the known number of oscillating low-luminosity red giants by 26 per cent (up to ≥1900 stars). About three quarters of our sample are classified as ascending red giant branch stars, while the remainder are red-clump stars. A novel scheme was applied to determine Δν for 108 stars with νmax close to the Nyquist frequency (387µHz>νmax>387µHz). Additionally, we identified 47 stars oscillating in the super-Nyquist frequency regime, up to 387 µHz, using long-cadence light curves. We show that the misclassifications are most likely due to large uncertainties in KIC surface gravities, and do not result from the absence of broad-band colours or from different physical properties such as reddening, spatial distribution, mass or metallicity. The sample will be valuable to study oscillations in low-luminosity red giants and to characterize planet candidates around those stars. Description: We selected 4758 stars with KIC predicted νmax ranging from close to the Nyquist frequency (280uHz) to 700uHz. Based on the SYD pipeline applied to the long-cadence light curves observed by Kepler , we detected unambiguous oscillations in 1523 red giants and reported the discovery of 626 new oscillating red giants.
