Using a Complete Spectroscopic Survey to Find Red Quasars and Test the KX Method

Jurek, Russell; Drinkwater, Michael John; Francis, Paul; Pimbblet, Kevin


We present an investigation of quasar colour-redshift parameter space in order to search for radio-quiet red quasars and to test the ability of a variant of the KX quasar selection method to detect quasars over a full range of colour without bias. This is achieved by combining InfraRed Imager and Spectrograph 2 imaging with the complete Fornax Cluster Spectroscopic Survey to probe parameter space unavailable to other surveys. We construct a new sample of 69 quasars with measured bJ - K colours....[Show more]
