Discovery of an Optically Faint Quasar atz= 5.70 and Implications for the Faint Endof the Quasar Luminosity Function
We present observations of an optically-faint quasar, RD J114816.2+525339, discovered from deep multi-color observations of the field around the z = 6.42 quasar SDSS J1148+5251. The two quasars have a projected separation of 109 arcsec and both are outliers in r-z versus z-J color-color space. Keck spectroscopy reveals RD J114816.2+525339 to be a broad-absorption line quasar at z = 5.70. With z_AB = 23.0, RD J114816.2+525339 is 3.3 mag fainter than SDSS J1148+5251, making it the faintest quasardoi:10.1086/498847 fatcat:yajierfbyzas3gtjqdlxa4rm54
