Chandra Deep Field South
(CDFS, CDF-S, CDF-South)
(X-ray deep survey encompassing HDF-South region)
The Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-South, CDFS or CDF-S) is
an X-ray deep survey
of a survey field within the constellation Fornax
by the Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO) ACIS spectrometer,
which eventually incorporated data from 80+ days of exposure.
The resulting image reveals hundreds of distant X-ray sources,
which suggest black holes, i.e., active galactic nuclei.
GOODS-S and Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF) followed up surveying the same region
at other wavelengths.
The Chandra Deep Field North (CDFN) is an analogous survey
in the northern hemisphere covering the Hubble Deep Field (HDF) survey field.
