First detection of the 448 GHz H2O transition in space

Abstract:

We present the first detection of the ortho-H2O 4₂₃ - 3₃₀ transition at 448 GHz in space. We observed this transition in the local (z = 0.010) luminous infrared (IR) galaxy ESO 320-G030 (IRAS F11506-3851) using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). The water 4₂₃ - 3₃₀ emission, which originates in the highly obscured nucleus of this galaxy, is spatially resolved over a region of ~65 pc in diameter and shows a regular rotation pattern compatible with the global molecular an...
