The 2MASS Red AGN Survey
The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) is a highly uniform digital imaging survey of the entire sky in three near infrared bands. The 2MASS catalogs provide unprecedented uniform photometric data for large samples of AGN discovered at other wavelengths, and also form the basis to search for previously unknown, obscured AGN. We present the results of a highly efficient near infrared color-based AGN survey using 2MASS that has already discovered 210 new, red AGN and QSOs. The extrapolated surface...[Show more]
