EXTENDED [C II] EMISSION IN LOCAL LUMINOUS INFRARED GALAXIES

Abstract:

We present Herschel/PACS observations of extended [C II] 157.7 μm line emission detected on 1-10 kpc scales in 60 local luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) from the Great Observatories All-sky LIRG Survey. We find that most of the extra-nuclear emission show [C II]/FIR ratios ≥4 × 10-3, larger than the mean ratio seen in the nuclei, and similar to those found in the extended disks of normal star-forming galaxies and the diffuse interstellar medium of our Galaxy. The [C II] "deficits" found in ...
