A first sample of faint radio sources with virtually complete redshifts: I. Infrared images, the Hubble diagram, and the alignment effect

Abstract:

We have obtained redshifts and infrared images for a sample of faint B2/6C radio sources whose fluxes are about six times fainter than those of sources in the bright 3C sample. We now have unambiguous redshifts for 90% of the sources, making this the first faint radio sample with such complete redshift information. We find that the infrared Hubble diagrams (K versus z) of the 3C sample and the B2/6C sample are similar at a low redshift (z < 0.6), but by a redshift about 1 the 6C/B2 galaxie...
