Spitzer SDSS Statistical Spectroscopic Survey (S5)
The Spitzer SDSS Statistical Spectroscopic Survey (S5) is a Cycle-5 Spitzer Legacy program to acquire 5 to 40 micron mid-infrared spectroscopy of a representative sample of galaxies from SDSS, selected for having prior photometric coverage in the UV and Halpha fluxes greater than 3x10-15
. The S5 project is an extension of the SSGSS
over a larger set of SDSS
sources (292) and narrower redshift range. In addition, the S5 sample was selected without mid-IR prior.
These data represent the first public data release of the full S5 sample. The dataset includes short-low, long-low, and short-high IRS spectroscopy for the full sample. Sources have been selected in 48 patches of at least 5 sources spatially separated by less than 30' in order to take advantage of the cluster observing mode of Spitzer.
