Fig. 2


Extracted 1D spectra and images in four wavelength bands of the four candidate quasars observed for the purpose of this study. The three objects CQ095833.3+021720.4, CQ095938.6+023316.7, and CQ100008.9+021440.7 are confirmed to be quasars, whereas object CQ095924.4+020842.6 is not. The three confirmed quasars all show a pronounced amount of reddening and BAL features. Upper panels: images of the objects shown in the optical F814W (I-band) filter from the HST-ACS mosaic, the near-infrared Ks filter from the KPNO mosaic, the X-ray Chandra merged energy band image, and the radio emission as seen by the VLA. Each of the images are 15 × 15 arcsec where north is up and east is to the left. Bottom panels: the solid black lines show the observed spectra from the NOT. Overplotted are the photometric data points shown by the purple dots from the merged optical/near-infrared photometric COSMOS catalog together with the composite quasar template spectrum from Selsing et al. (2016) with (red solid line) and without (blue dashed line) reddening, respectively. The redshift and amount of reddening, AV, for each of the objects are shown in the upper left corner, while the name and selection method (from Col. 3 in Table 1) by which they were identified are shown in the upper right corner.
