Science of Active Galactic Nuclei with the GTC and CanariCam

Abstract:

CanariCam is the facility mid-infrared (MIR) instrument for the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), a 10.4m telescope at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos on La Palma. One of the science drivers for Canari-Cam is the study of active galactic nuclei (AGN). We will exploit the instrument's high sensitivity in imaging,spectroscopy, and polarimetry modes to answer fundamental questions of AGN and their host galaxies. Dust in the nucleus of an active galaxy reprocesses the intrinsic radiatio...
