Abstract

We are conducting an optical imaging search for gravitational lenses. A sample of known quasars was selected on the basis of high redshifts and apparently large absolute luminosities; these selection criteria significantly enhance the probability that a given QSO is gravitationally magnified. Our search has yielded so far at least one lensed QSO, and several promissing candidates.
