    The impact of the progressive addition of ZnO up to 5 mol% on the thermal, structural, and optical properties of Er3+-doped phosphate glasses within the system NaPO3-NaF-ZnO-Ag2O is discussed. The glass network was found to depolymerize upon the addition of ZnO. This promotes a slight increase in the intensity of the emission at µm as well as enhances the silver ions clustering ability Author: Luukas Kuusela, Alexander Veber, Nadia G. Boetti, Laeticia Petit. The name “quasars” started out as short for “quasi-stellar radio sources” (here “quasi-stellar” means “sort of like stars”). The discovery of radio sources that appeared point-like, just like stars, came with the use of surplus World War II radar equipment in the s.

    Near the galaxy's center, left over cosmic debris is steadily being consumed by a central black hole with a billion times the mass of the Sun. As in other active galaxies, that process likely generates the radio, X-ray, and gamma-ray energy radiated by Centaurus A (text adapted from APOD).

    Seyfert Galaxies are spiral galaxies with extremely bright nuclei Nuc times as bright as the Milky Way. Seyfert Galaxies emit a lot of infrared and radio energy This is not "star-like" That is, not like blackbody radiation. Seyfert Galaxies have broad emission lines Atoms emit photons of specific colors. For example, weak quasars share some characteristics with some very active galaxies, and the feeblest active galaxies often resemble the most explosive normal galaxies. Figure A possible evolutionary sequence for galaxies, beginning with the highly luminous quasars, decreasing in violence through the radio and Seyfert galaxies, and ending.

Get this from a library. The search for extended infrared emission near interacting and active galaxies. [P N Appleton; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The following subject areas are covered: the search for extended far IR emission; the search for extended emission in galaxy groups; a brief review of the flattening algorithm; the target groups; extended emission from groups and intergalactic HI clouds; and morphological image : Philip N.

Appleton. An active galactic nucleus (AGN) is a compact region at the center of a galaxy that has a much higher than normal luminosity over at least some portion of the electromagnetic spectrum with characteristics indicating that the luminosity is not produced by excess non-stellar emission has been observed in the radio, microwave, infrared, optical, ultra-violet, X-ray and gamma ray wavebands.

A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter. The word galaxy is derived from the Greek galaxias (γαλαξίας), literally "milky", a reference to the Milky es range in size from dwarfs with just a few hundred million (10 8) stars to giants with one hundred trillion (10 14) stars, each orbiting its galaxy's center.

Active galaxies emit most of their light at wavelengths both shorter and longer than visible active galaxy refers to a system where the abnormal activity is related to violent events occurring in. GALAXIES, X-RAY EMISSION. Giuseppina Fabbiano. The study of the x-ray emission of normal galaxies is a very recent part of astronomy.

This work has been made possible by the sensitive x-ray imaging observations of the Einstein (HEAO 2) satellite, launched by NASA in November Before then, with the exclusion of the bright x-ray sources associated with Seyfert nuclei, only four galaxies.

Infrared emission from galaxies comes primarily from three sources: stars, interstellar gas, and dust. The emission from stars peaks in the near infrared ( microns - a micron is short for a micrometer or meters).

We present the first results from a near-infrared narrow-band search for primeval galaxies (PGs) using the Keck 10~m telescope. We have targeted our fields for three QSOs and one radio galaxy at.

The far infrared (FIR) properties of normal, non-infrared-bright galaxies along the Hubble sequence are studied as a function of their morphological type, using a complete sample of galaxies in. Near-infrared template spectra of normal galaxies: k-corrections, galaxy models and stellar populations.

Here, we show that the infrared emission is arising solely from dust heated by an active galactic nuclei (AGN), providing a unique opportunity to study the AGN infrared SED without the contaminating emission from the host galaxy. Results The active galaxy classifications include N-type galaxies which are disturbed or interacting giant ellipticals, while the Seyferts are very bright nuclei of spirals.

Thus we are faced with a wide variety of extragalactic sources, with a number of different exotic features, including jets and broad emission lines, and emitting over the entire EM.

In some very distorted galaxies, interpretation of the far-IR emission can be complicated by the possibility of more effective conversion of visible-wavelength radiation from an old stellar population into thermal infrared emission, when the dust is no longer confined to a.

We analyze a comprehensive set of MIR/FIR observations of Stephan's Quintet (SQ), taken with the Spitzer Space Telescope. Our study reveals the presence of a luminous (L{sub IR} {approx} x 10{sup 43} erg s{sup -1}) and extended component of infrared dust emission, not connected with the main bodies of the galaxies, but roughly coincident with the X-ray halo of the group.

Abstract. Aspects of the infrared emission from galaxies obtained from ground-based observations are described. There are clear differences between the dust in galaxies with active nuclei and those dominated by nuclear HII by: 2. Figure 2. Galactic Center in X-Rays: This artificial-color mosaic of 30 images taken with the Chandra X-ray satellite shows a region × light-years in extent and centered on Sagittarius A*, the bright white source in the center of the picture.
