RXJ 13434+0001 is a rare example of radio-quiet type-2 quasars at high redshift. It was discovered through deepROSATobservations and identified with a galaxy with a strong but narrow Lyα emission line atz= 2.35. In order to constrain the hard-X-ray properties we observed RXJ 13434+0001 withASCA.The main purpose is to study the origin of the X-ray emission observed withROSAT.If it is a scattered component from a strongly absorbed AGN, we could see it much brighter in the hard X-ray band.
