Akari Deep Field South (ADFS) : MeerKAT Observations & Multi-Wavelength Data
The Akari Deep Field South (ADFS) is one of the best-studied extragalactic fields in the southern sky. Originally chosen to carry out observations of the far-infrared background with the JAXA/ESA/KASI Akari satellite due to its low level of Galactic and Zodiacal foreground emission, it has since been observed by most ground-based and space-based instruments. The figure above illustrates some of the key multi-wavelength datasets available in the field while the table below gives a little more detail about all observations carried out to date. Multi-epoch ADFS observations with the MeerKAT radio telescope are ongoing and will be combined with MeerLICHT observations for radio/optical joint variability studies.
