### Morphology and Surface Brightness Evolution of z\sim1.1 Radio Galaxies

Abstract:

We use $K-band imaging to investigate the angular size and morphology of 10 6C radio galaxies, at redshifts$1\leq z\leq 1.4\$. Two appear to be undergoing mergers, another contains two intensity peaks aligned with the radio jets, while the other seven appear consistent with being normal ellipticals in the K-band. Intrinsic half-light radii are estimated from the areas of each radio galaxy image above a series of thresholds. The 6C galaxy radii are found to be significantly smaller than those ...
