Multiwavelength Supporting Data

Multi-wavelength coverage of the survey area has been used to determine far-infrared (FIR) photometric redshifts to δz≤0.5, calibrated to existing spectroscopic redshifts.

Near- and Mid-Infrared

SHADES benefits from abundant multi-wavelength data Spitzer Space Telescope Spitzer Wide-area Infra Red Extragalactic (SWIRE) Legacy Survey (Lonsdale et al 2003, Lonsdale et al 2004) and Spitzer Guaranteed Time Observation data (Egami et al 2004, Huang et al 2004).


Wide-field radio images were obtained for both the SHADES fields using the VLA to a depth of 4.2μJy/beam in the Lockman Hole East with a 1.3 arcsecond synthesised beam and to a depth of 6.3-8.4μJy/beam in the SXDF with 1.6 arcsecond a synthesised beam.

Radio postage stamps for each of the detected SHADES sources are available here.


The SXDF SHADES field is complemented by deep optical data reaching B=28.1, V=27.8, R=27.6, i'=27.6, z'=26.6 (3-sigma, 2" aperture AB magnitudes) and infrared data from the UKIDSS UDS in the J and K-bands, both reaching J=K=24 (AB), 3-sigma, 2" diameter apertures. More information is available via the UDS page.
Here's a BRz (B=blue, R=green, z=red) colour jpeg of the SHADES area, produced by Ichi Tanaka.


There is 100 ksec of X-ray data from XMM-Newton.
