Abstract / Description:IRAC imaging of a 4&farcm;7ˆ4&farcm;7 area in
the Lockman Hole detected over 400 galaxies in
the IRAC 3.6 and 4.5 mum bands, 120 in the 5.8
mum band, and 80 in the 8.0 mum band in 30
minutes of observing time. Color-color diagrams
suggest that about half of these galaxies are at
redshifts 0.6<z<1.3 with about a quarter at
higher redshifts (z>1.3). We also detect IRAC
counterparts for six of the seven SCUBA sources
and all nine XMM-Newton sources in this area. The
detection of the counterparts of the SCUBA
sources and galaxies at z>1.3 demonstrates the
ability of IRAC to probe the universe at very
high redshifts.
