    • Estimations of the magnetic field strength in the torus of IC 5063 using near-infrared polarimetry 

      López-Rodríguez, E.; Packham, Christopher C.; Young, Stuart; Elitzur, Moshe; Levenson, Nancy A.; Mason, Rachel E.; Ramos Almeida, Cristina; Alonso-Herrero, Almudena; Jones, T. J.; Perlman, Eric S. (2013-05)
      An optically and geometrically thick torus obscures the central engine of active galactic nuclei (AGN) from some lines of sight. From a magnetohydrodynamical framework, the torus can be considered to be a particular region ...
    • Extended warm gas in the ULIRG Mrk273: Galactic outflows and tidal debris 

      Rodríguez Zaurín, Javier; Tadhunter, Clive N.; Rupke, David S N; Veilleux, Sylvain; Spoon, Henrik W W; Chiaberge, Marco; Ramos Almeida, Cristina; Batcheldor, Dan; Sparks, William B. (2014-11)
      We present new HST/ACS medium-and narrow-band images and optical Isaac Newton Telescope long-slit spectra of the merging system Mrk273. The HST observations sample the [OIII]λλ4959,5007 emission from the galaxy and the ...
    • Polarized mid-infrared synchrotron emission in the core of Cygnus A 

      López Rodríguez, Enrique; Packham, Christopher C.; Tadhunter, Clive N.; Mason, Rachel E.; Perlman, Eric S.; Alonso-Herrero, Almudena; Ramos Almeida, Cristina; Ichikawa, Kohei; Levenson, Nancy A.; Rodríguez-Espinosa, José Miguel (2014-10-01)
      We present high-angular (∼0". 4) resolution mid-infrared (MIR) polarimetric observations in the 8.7μm and 11.6μm filters of Cygnus A using CanariCam on the 10.4 m Gran Telescopio CANARIAS. A highly polarized nucleus ...
    • Uncovering the deeply embedded active galactic nucleus activity in the nuclear regions of the interacting galaxy Arp 299 

      Alonso-Herrero, A.; Roche, P.F.; Esquej, P.; González-Martín, Omaira; Pereira-Santaella, Miguel; Ramos Almeida, Cristina; Levenson, Nancy A; Packham, Christopher C.; Asensio Ramos, Andrés; Perlman, Eric S (2013-11-26)
      We present mid-infrared (MIR) 8-13 μm spectroscopy of the nuclear regions of the interacting galaxy Arp 299 (IC 694+NGC 3690) obtained with CanariCam (CC) on the 10.4 m Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC). The high angular ...
