We present radio observations of the galaxy merger remnant Mrk 212 with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and the upgraded Giant Meter Radio Telescope (uGMRT). Mrk 212 has two previously known radio sources associated with the two optical nuclei, S1 and S2, with a projected separation of ~6 kpc, making it a dual active galactic nuclei (AGN) candidate. Our new 15 GHz VLA observations reveal that S1 is a double radio source centred around the optical nucleus; its total extent is ~750… Expand

The Nature of Jets in Double-peaked Emission-line AGN in the KISSR Sample
Double-peaked emission-line AGN (DPAGN) have been regarded as binary black hole candidates. We present here results from parsec-scale radio observations with the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) ofExpand
Detection of Double-Nuclei Galaxies in SDSS
A novel algorithm "Gothic" (Graph-bOosTed iterated HIll Climbing) is introduced that detects whether a given image of a galaxy has characteristic features of a DNG (ASCL entry 2707) with a maximum detection rate of 4.2% with a careful choice of the input catalog. Expand
Periodic variability of the z = 2.0 quasar QSO B1312+7837
We report here the first results from a 15-yr long variability monitoring of the z = 2.0 quasar QSO B1312+7837. It shows luminosity changes with a period P ∼ 6.13 yr (P ∼ 2.04 yr at rest frame) andExpand
JUDE (Jayant’s UVIT Data Explorer) pipeline user manual
We have written a reference manual to use JUDE   (Jayant’s UVIT Data Explorer) data pipeline software for processing and reducing the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT) Level 1 data into eventExpand


A Kiloparsec-scale Binary Active Galactic Nucleus Confirmed by the Expanded Very Large Array
We report the confirmation of a kiloparsec-scale binary active galactic nucleus (AGN) with high-resolution radio images from the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA). SDSS J150243.1+111557 is aExpand
A supernova factory in Mrk 273
We report on 1.6- and 5.0-GHz observations of the ultraluminous infrared galaxy (ULIRG) Mrk 273, using the European VLBI Network and the Multi-Element Radio-Linked Interferometer Network (MERLIN). WeExpand
The Atlas3D project - XXXI. Nuclear radio emission in nearby early-type galaxies
We present the results of a high-resolution, 5 GHz, Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array study of the nuclear radio emission in a representative subset of the ATLAS^(3D) survey of early-type galaxiesExpand
Discovery of a dual active galactic nucleus with ∼8 kpc separation
Targeted searches for dual active galactic nuclei (AGN), with separations 1 -- 10 kpc, have yielded relatively few successes. A recent pilot survey by Satyapal et al. has demonstrated thatExpand
X-Ray Properties of Radio-selected Dual Active Galactic Nuclei
Merger simulations predict that tidally induced gas inflows can trigger kpc-scale dual active galactic nuclei (dAGN) in heavily obscured environments. Previously with the Very Large Array, we haveExpand
Investigation of Dual Active Nuclei, Outflows, Shock-heated Gas, and Young Star Clusters in Markarian 266
Results of observations with the Spitzer, Hubble, GALEX, Chandra, and XMM-Newton space telescopes are presented for the luminous infrared galaxy (LIRG) merger Markarian 266. The SW (Seyfert 2) and NEExpand
Discovery of a Binary Active Galactic Nucleus in the Ultraluminous Infrared Galaxy NGC 6240 Using Chandra
Ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs) are outstanding due to their huge luminosity output in the infrared, which is predominantly powered by superstarbursts and/or hidden active galactic nucleiExpand
A Survey of Kiloparsec-Scale Radio Outflows in Radio-Quiet Active Galactic Nuclei
Seyfert galaxies commonly host compact jets spanning 10-100 pc scales, but larger structures are resolved out in long-baseline aperture synthesis surveys. Previous, targeted studies showed thatExpand
Understanding Dual Active Galactic Nucleus Activation in the nearby Universe
We study the fraction of dual active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in a sample of 167 nearby (z < 0.05), moderate-luminosity, ultra-hard X-ray-selected AGNs from the all-sky Swift Burst Alert TelescopeExpand
VLA observations of the multiple jet galaxy 3C 75
VLA observations of the central radio source in Abell 400, 3C 75, at 6 and 20 cm are presented. The VLA maps show that this radio source consists of a pair of twin jets originating in the apparentlyExpand
