Marisa Brienza (INAF-IRA), "The LOFAR paper splash: survey products and AGN results"

The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) is covering the entire northern sky with unprecedented levels of resolution and sensitivity in the band 120-168 MHz. In February 2019, the first full quality data release of LoTSS in the region of the HETDEX Spring Field will be publicly available. This release will be accompanied by a number of papers recently appeared on arXiv that made use of LOFAR data. These works involved many institutions and scientists, including INAF-IRA personnel. An introduction to the survey and a discussion of the results obtained with the survey data on galaxy clusters have been presented by Andrea Botteon on Nov 30th. In this talk I will give a brief overview of the survey, with particular focus on the data products that will soon be released and available for your science. I will then present some of the interesting results in the field of AGN, which have been published as part of the LOFAR splash.
