High-z Quasar Selection with Hyper Suprime-Cam
Quasars at high (>6) redshift are one of the best tracers of early Universe,
thanks to its high luminosity and characteristic spectrum.
However, quasars are very rare objects and it is important to establish a method to
select quasars effectively.
Based on the above, I will present the strategy for identifying high-z quasars by using SED fitting (#HSC project 47).
The goal of this study is to effectively isolate high-z quasars from contaminating sources such as brown dwarfs.
We are going to apply SED fitting method for quasar selection along with conservative two-color selection.
I will report the current status of SED fitting code development, and preliminary results of its application.
In addition, I would like to introduce the recently found three z~7 quasars (Venemans+13).
