Nuclear properties of a sample of nearby spiral galaxies from Hubble Space Telescope STIS imaging

Abstract:

We present surface photometry for the central regions of a sample of 48 spiral galaxies (mostly unbarred and barred of type Sbc or Sc) observed with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on board the Hubble Space Telescope. Surface brightness profiles (SBPs) were derived and modeled with a Nuker law. We also analyzed archival Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 images with a larger field of view, which are available for 18 galaxies in our sample. We modeled the extracted bulge SBPs with an expon...
