The Phoenix Deep Survey: Extremely Red Galaxies and Cluster Candidates

Smith, Anthony G.; Hopkins, Andrew M.; Hunstead, Richard; Schmidt, Samuel J.; Alfonso, Jose; Georgakakis, Antonis E.; Cram, Lawrence; Mobasher, Bahram; Sullivan, Mark


We present the results of a study of a sample of 375 extremely red galaxies (ERGs) in the Phoenix Deep Survey, 273 of which constitute a subsample which is 80% complete to Ks = 18.5 over an area of 1160 arcmin2. The angular correlation function for ERGs is estimated, and the association of ERGs with faint radio sources explored. We find tentative evidence that ERGs and faint radio sources are associated at z ≳ 0.5. A new overdensity-mapping algorithm has been used to characterize the ERG...[Show more]
