The nuclear stellar core, the hot dust source, and the location of the nucleus of NGC 1068

Abstract:

We present new near-infrared speckle and adaptive optics imaging and integral field spectroscopy of the nuclear region of NGC 1068. Ninety-four percent of the K-band light in the central 1" originates from a ≤30 milliarcsecond diameter source whose position we determine to coincide within ± 0''15 with the apex of the cone structure seen in the optical narrow emission lines, as well as the location of the flat spectrum radio component SI and the 12 μm emission peak. We interpret the compact so...
