    affect galaxy evolution feedback Using multiwavelength surveys to trace the cosmic history of black hole growth at the centers of galaxies we find that most Active Galactic Nuclei are heavily obscured and thus are not found in large area optical surveys like the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and that obscuration is more common in the young Universe and in moderate luminosity AGN Most black hole growth takes place in these moderate luminosity AGN rather than in their higher luminosity counterparts quasars and feedback in such systems affects far more galaxies than do quasars At the peak epoch of black hole growth and star formation 5 billion years ago we find evidence that AGN may help quench star formation which is not the case in the local Universe Perhaps surprisingly most moderate luminosity AGN are hosted in galaxies with significant disks even at the peak epoch suggesting that major mergers do not trigger most black hole growth Finally we find an intriguing dependence of AGN activity on host galaxy morphology which is not yet fully explained DRL A8 Home People Research News Events Undergraduate Graduate Courses Outreach Resources Contact Maps General Directions Events High Energy Matthias Kaminski Washintion November 12 2012
