[56.11] FR II BALQSOs in the SDSS

J. J. Schaefer, M. S. Brotherton (University of Wyoming)

FR II BALQSOs are a rare form of BALQSO, of which only two have been published in literature. These Broad Absorption Line Quasi-Stellar Objects(BALQSOs) are extremely radio luminous and display classic large-scale double-lobed radio structures. Due to the vast quantity of objects observed by the SDSS, more of these FR II BALQSOs have been found. These objects, currently representing only a minute fraction of known BALQSOs, may soon have a sample large enough to enable statistical analysis,and comparisons to other BALQSOs. We present a catalog comprised of FR II BALQSOs found in current releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS).

This research is funded by Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium, NASA Grant #NGT-40102 and by Wyoming NASA EPSCoR NASA Grant #NCC5-578.
