A candidate gravitational lens in the Hubble Deep Field

By David W. Hogg, Roger Bl, Tomislav Kundić, C. D. Fassnacht and Sangeeta Malhotra

Abstract

The discovery of HDF J123652+621227, a candidate gravitational lens in the HDF, is reported. This lens may be multiply imaging several optical sources at different redshifts. If follow-up spectroscopy of the lens and the brightest image confirms this hypothesis, observations of this system alone can be used to obtain an estimate of the redshift distribution at extremely faint flux levels
