The Spectra of Red Quasars

Francis, Paul; Drake, Catherine; Whiting, Matthew T; Drinkwater, Michael John; Webster, Rachel L


We measure the spectral properties of a representative sub-sample of 187 quasars, drawn from the Parkes Half-Jansky, Flat-radio-spectrum Sample (PHFS). Quasars with a wide range of rest-frame optical/UV continuum slopes are included in the analysis: their colours range over 2 < B-K < 7. We present composite spectra of red and blue sub-samples of the PHFS quasars, and tabulate their emission line properties. The median Hβ and [O III] emission line equivalent widths of the red quasar sub-sample...[Show more]
