This Thesis presents a study of galaxies and quasars from the viewpoint of their optical, infrared and X-ray properties by combining optical data from Gemini and WIYN with near to far-IR and optical data from the SWIRE survey and X-ray data from Chandra. This work represents the largest existing optical spectroscopic survey in ELAIS-N1 with ∽300 reliable spectroscopic redshifts and the largest Xray survey, in the same field, which has extended the previous X-ray coverage in ELAIS-N1 by a factor of 12 and has detected more than 600 X-ray sources. Optical spectroscopy is used both to calibrate photometric redshift techniques and distinguish between star forming galaxies and quasars. The merged X-ray, optical and infrared catalogue is used to determine spectral energy distributions and correctly identify and characterize AGN, star forming galaxies and the link between black hole growth and star formation in the host galaxy.
