Description

We present a new sample of quarter-Jansky flat-spectrum radio sources selected to search for high-redshift quasars and to study the evolution of the flat-spectrum quasar population. The sample comprises 878 radio sources selected from the Parkes catalogues with spectral indices α2.7 GHz5 GHz ≥ -0.4 where Sν ∝ να. The sample covers all right ascensions and the declination range from -80 °.0 to +2 °.5, excluding low galactic latitudes (| b | < 10 °) and the Magellanic Cloud regions. We have...[Show more]
