Description

We present the results of our search for gravitationally lensed quasars in the OGLE survey. We show candidates from a 650 square degrees area behind the Magellanic Clouds System. The study of strong lensing time delays serves as a powerful probe in cosmology. The OGLE database provides long time light curves, allowing for a cost-effective way to accurately derive time delays and therefore study Hubble constant.
