Exploring AGN Activity over cosmic time with the SKA
MetadataShow full item record
In this Chapter we present the motivation for undertaking both a wide and deep survey with the SKA in the context of studying AGN activity across cosmic time. With an rms down to 1 µJy/beam at 1 GHz over 1,000 - 5,000 deg2 in 1 year (wide tier band 1/2) and an rms down to 200 nJy/beam over 10 - 30 deg2 in 2000 hours (deep tier band 1/2), these surveys will directly detect faint radio-loud and radio-quiet AGN (down to a 1 GHz radio luminosity of about 2×1023 W/Hz at z = 6). For the first time, this will enable us to conduct detailed studies of the cosmic evolution of radio AGN activity to the cosmic dawn (z ? 6), covering all environmental densities.

(2014)The origin of the most energetic particles in nature, the ultra-high-energy (UHE) cosmic rays, is still a mystery. Only the most energetic of these have sufficiently small angular deflections to be used for directional ...
