We report the discovery of a new optical-IR synchrotron jet in the radio galaxy 3C 133 from our HST NICMOS snapshot survey. The jet and eastern hot spot are well resolved and visible at both optical and IR wavelengths. The IR jet follows the morphology of the inner part of the radio jet, with three distinct knots identified with features in the radio. The radio-IR SEDs of the knots are examined, along with those of two more distant hot spots at the eastern extreme of the radio feature. The… Expand
Spitzer Observations of Centaurus A: Infrared Synchrotron Emission from the Northern Lobe
We present measurements obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope in five bands from 3.6 to 24 μm of the northern inner radio lobe of Centaurus A, the nearest powerful radio galaxy. We show that thisExpand
Optical polarimetry of the jets of nearby radio galaxies. I. The data
We present an overview of new HST imaging polarimetry of six nearby radio galaxies with optical jets. These observations triple the number of extragalactic jets with subarcsecond-resolution opticalExpand
Hubble space telescope near-infrared snapshot survey of 3CR radio source counterparts. II. An atlas and inventory of the host galaxies, mergers, and companions
The second part of an H-band "atlas'' of z < 0.3 3CR radio galaxies, using the Hubble Space Telescope Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (HST NICMOS2) is presented, finding the population to be consistent with the local population of quiescent elliptical galaxies, but with a longer tail to low Sersic index.

We present 19 nearby (z < 0.3) 3CR radio galaxies imaged at low and high excitation as part of a Cycle 15 Hubble Space Telescope (HST) snapshot survey with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).Expand
X-Ray-to-radio Offset Inference from Low-count X-Ray Jets
Observations of positional offsets between the location of X-ray and radio features in many resolved, extragalactic jets indicates that the emitting regions are not cospatial, an important piece ofExpand


We present a Hubble Space Telescope image of the FR II radio galaxy 3C 401, obtained at 1.6 μm with NICMOS, in which we identify the infrared counterpart of the brightest region of the radio jet. TheExpand
The Jet and Circumnuclear Environment of 3C 293
We present new HST NIR polarimetry, broadband and narrowband imaging, and MERLIN 4.5 GHz multifrequency synthesis radio imaging of 3C 293, a unique radio galaxy whose host is an obvious mergerExpand
The Radio-ultraviolet spectral energy distribution of the jet in 3C 273
We present deep VLA and HST observations of the large-scale jet in 3C 273 matched to 0. �� 3 resolution. The observed spectra show a significant flattening in the infrared-ultraviolet wavelengthExpand
Hubble Space Telescope Near-Infrared Snapshot Survey of 3CR Radio Source Counterparts at Low Redshift
We present newly acquired images of the near-infrared counterpart of 3CR radio sources. All the sources were selected to have a redshift of less than 0.3 to allow us to obtain the highest spatialExpand
A survey of extended radio jets with Chandra and HST
We present the results from an X-ray and optical survey of a sample of 17 radio jets in AGN performed with Chandra and HST. The sample was selected from the radio and is unbiased toward detection atExpand
Ultraviolet HST Observations of the Jet in M87
We present new ultraviolet photometry of the jet in M87 obtained from HST WFPC2 imaging. We combine these ultraviolet data with previously published photometry for the knots of the jet in radio,Expand
A Survey of Extended Radio Jets with Chandra and the Hubble Space Telescope
We present the results from an X-ray and optical survey of a sample of 17 radio jets in active galactic nuclei performed with Chandra and the Hubble Space Telescope. The sample was selected from theExpand
Chandra X-Ray Observations of Pictor A: High-Energy Cosmic Rays in a Radio Galaxy
We report X-ray observations of the nearby, powerful radio galaxy Pictor A with the Chandra Observatory and optical and near-UV observations of its western radio hot spot with the Hubble SpaceExpand
The origins of X-ray emission from the hot spots of FR II radio sources
We use new and archival Chandra data to investigate the X-ray emission from a large sample of compact hot spots of FR II radio galaxies and quasars from the 3C catalog. We find that only the mostExpand
In-situ particle acceleration in extragalactic radio hot spots: observations meet expectations
We discuss, in terms of particle acceleration, the results from optical VLT observations of hot spots associated with radio galaxies. On the basis of observational and theoretical grounds, theExpand
