Title AKARI/IRC Deep Survey in the North Ecliptic Pole Region
Abstract We have made a deep and wide imaging survey with all nine AKARI/IRC bands from 2 to 24m within a half degree of the North Ecliptic Pole. The survey covered a circular area of 0.38deg centered at RA 17h56m, Dec 66D37' where a deep optical multi-band survey has been conducted by Subaru/Suprime-Cam. The 5 sensitivity of the survey for point sources is 11.0, 48, 117, and 275Jy at wavelengths 3, 7, 15, and 24m, respectively. The survey is limited by sky noise at wavelengths from 7 to 24m, and limited by source confusion from 2 to 4m. We have also made a point source catalog at each band, consisting of more than 5000 sources with a 50% completeness limit of 93Jy at 15m. Our results are consistent with the pilot survey at faint fluxes and has better statistical significance at the bright fluxes. This is the first near- and mid-infrared sub-mJy extragalactic survey with contiguous wavelength coverage from 2 to 24m and a large band-merged catalogue. It will provide powerful and unique diagnostics of obscured star-formation and AGN activities in the galaxies up to .
