NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2010MNRAS.405.2243T Spectroscopic identifications of SWIRE sources in ELAIS-N1 Trichas, M.; Rowan-Robinson, M.; Georgakakis, A.; Valtchanov, I.; Nandra, K.; Farrah, D.; Morrison, G.; Clements, D.; Waddington, I. Abstract. ABSTRACT We present the largest spectroscopic follow-up performed in SWIRE ELAIS-N1. We were able to determine redshifts for 289 extragalactic sources. The values of spectroscopic redshifts of the latter have been compared with the estimated values from our photometric redshift code with very good agreement between the two for both galaxies and quasars. Six of the quasars are hyperluminous infrared (IR) galaxies all of which are broad-line active galactic nuclei. We have performed emission-line diagnostics for 30 sources using the [OIII]/H{beta}, [NII]/{Halpha} and [SII]/{Halpha} line ratios in order to classify these 30 sources into star forming, Seyferts, composite and LINER and compare the results to the predictions from our spectral energy distribution template fitting methods and mid-IR selection methods. Key words: galaxies: evolution, galaxies: photometry, quasars: general, cosmology: observations
