原始语种摘要: We investigate the use of optical variabil- ity over 6 months to identify AGNs in the GOODS-South field. Photometry was per- formed on a sample of 24 infrared power law-selected AGN candidates and 104 X-ray sources with optical counterparts. We find that while the majority of variable objects are unobscured AGN, 30% of IR-only selected candidates show evidence of AGN via optical variability.
