Infrared spectropolarimetry of Seyfert galaxy NGC1068

Abstract:

Although most of the luminosity of Seyfert galaxy nuclei is emitted in the IR, the relative amounts of thermal dust and non-thermal emission are uncertain. Seyfert galaxies generally have smooth and featureless IR spectra, in contrast to the prominent dust emission features seen in galaxies whose nuclei resemble giant H II regions - the star burst nuclei1,2. Nevertheless, in type 2 Seyferts, the general form of the energy distribution and lack of marked variability suggest that here too therm...
