Finding young, dust reddened quasars with eRosita

Not scheduled




Extremely red objects have presented us some of the most interesting objects in the Universe, from ULIRGs at the peak of the star formation history, to some of the highest redshift sources, to Brown Dwarfs in the Milky Way. When coupled with ancillary surveys, such as radio, the incidence of AGN has been shown to be more than 50% also revealing some of the most luminous, but dust obscured objects known. We plan to study the incidence of X-ray AGN among these Extremely Red Objects (EROs) with eRosita. As a secondary step, we will also stack on the positions of these EROs to reveal possible obscured X-ray flux. I will present first results finding these objects in the eFEDS fields and will give an outlook for eRASS1-8.
