Hunting for Gravitationally Lensed AGN

Gravitational lensing is a powerful tool for probing high-redshift galaxies. Massive clusters of galaxies magnify (increase the size) and amplify (increase the number of photon counts) background sources, allowing for studies of these sources at higher spatial resolution as well as the detection and characterization of sources that would have been too distant and therefore faint for current instrumentation to detect (see Kneib & Natarajan 2011 for a recent review of the field). 507 more words
