[116.07] FIRST Radio Sources in the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey

F. Tam (Stanford University & KPNO), B. T. Jannuzi, A. Dey (NOAO), NDWFS Team

We present the initial results from our efforts to obtain optical identifications of FIRST radio sources using the deep optical imaging from the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey (see poster by Jannuzi, Dey, & NDWFS Team at this meeting). Candidate optical identifications could easily be selected for over 90% of the catalogued FIRST sources in our survey field. Implications for future follow-up and the studies of various populations of radio sources will be discussed.

This research was supported by the Kitt Peak National Observatory site program of the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program which is funded by the National Science Foundation.
