Determination of masses of the central black holes in NGC 524 and 2549 using laser guide star adaptive optics

Abstract:

We present observations of early-type galaxies NGC 524 and 2549 with laser guide star adaptive optics (LGS AO) obtained at GEMINI North telescope using the Near-infrared Integral Field Spectrograph (NIFS) integral field unit (IFU) in the K band. The purpose of these observations is to determine high spatial resolution stellar kinematics within the nuclei of these galaxies and, in combination with previously obtained large-scale observations with the SAURON IFU, to determine the masses (M•) of...
