☞ Map the large scale environment and host dark matter halos of the earliest supermassive black holes;
☞ Investigate the co-evolution of supermassive black holes and their host galaxies;
☞ Constrain black hole growth and AGN feedback;
☞ Probe Galaxy Ionizing Photon Escape and Cosmic Reionization
☞ Map protocluster-scale environments of quasar fields rich with dusty star-forming galaxies;
☞ Constrain which galaxies dominate the cosmic infrared background;
☞ Measure the [CII] luminosity function;
☞ Probe metal enrichment and galaxy formation with co-spatial quasar absorption lines
We are performing deep optical imaging for all ASPIRE quasar fields with HST, Keck, LBT and Magellan and obtaining spectroscopic follow up with Keck, MMT and Magellan.
We obtained deep 3GHz radio observations for all ASPIRE quasar fields to detect the radio emissions from the quasars and distant galaxies in these fields.
We are collecting deep X-ray images for ASPIRE quasars. These data will enable us to characterize the quasar accretion physics and AGN activities in field galaxies.
