Mid-infrared sub-arcsecond spectroscopy of active galaxy nuclei

Abstract:

I present recent spectroscopic observations of nearby AGN obtained at 8-13 mu m with TReCS on Gemini-S. The observations reveal variations in absorption depth on subarcsecond scales in Circinus and NGC 5506 and delineate the regions of ionized gas and PAH emission region in Circinus. Several nearby active galaxies show evidence of resolved circumnuclear dusty structures with sizes of 10s of parsecs. The silicate absorption profile towards the most heavily obscured nuclei are narrower than tho...
