Face-on dust discs in galaxies with optical jets

Abstract:

The presence of optical synchrotron jets in radio galaxies is relatively unusual. We show that of the nearest five FRI 3CR radio galaxies showing optical jets, four display evidence for almost circular, presumably face-on, dust discs. None of the other twenty nearby FRIs in our sample show circular dust discs, although dust is found in 19/20 cases. This is strong support for the two-fold idea that (1) jets emerge close to perpendicular to inner gas discs and (2) optical non-thermal synchrotro...
