CIRPASS near-infrared integral-field spectroscopy of massive star clusters in the starburst galaxy NGC 1140

Abstract:

We analyse near-infrared integral field spectroscopy of the central starburst region of NGC 1140, obtained at the Gemini-South telescope equipped with CIRPASS. Our ∼1.45-1.67 μm wavelength coverage includes the bright [Fe II]λ 1.64-μm emission line, as well as high-order Brackett (hydrogen) lines. While strong [Fe II] emission, thought to originate in the thermal shocks associated with supernova remnants, is found throughout the galaxy, both Br 12-4 and Br 14-4 emission, and weak CO(6,3) abso...
