[86.11U] FIRST Radio Galaxies in the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey

We present an initial sample of optical and IR counterparts of FIRST radio sources identified using the images of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey. The complete NDWFS sample of counterparts to FIRST sources will number approximately 2000 objects. Using the K-z relation to indicate the distance of the radio sources, our analysis of the properties of the current sub-sample reveals evidence of significant evolution of the radio luminosity function from z~0 to z~2.

J. B. Henderson's research was supported by the NOAO/KPNO Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation. NOAO and KPNO are operated by AURA, Inc., for the National Science Foundation.
