The LDSS deep redshift survey

Colless, Matthew; Ellis, Richard; Taylor, Keith; Hook, Richard N


The low dispersion survey spectrograph (LDSS) has been used to obtain intermediate dispersion spectrsocpy for a sample of 149 faint objects selected randomly from the magnitude range b(J) between 21 and 22.5. The results of the spectroscopic survey are presented. The form of the redshift distribution and the distribution of forbidden O II equivalent widths are discussed. It is found that the LDSS increased the limiting magnitude of field redshift surveys by about 1.0 mag, while maintaining a...[Show more]
