We report 0.9-1.4 µm spectroscopic observations of NGC1068 collected during the commissioning phase of the near infrared camera spectrometer (NICS) of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG). These yielded the first extragalactic measurement of [P II] (1.188 µm) line emission. In the central 0.75 " x2 " the [Fe II]/[P II] line-intensity ratio is close to… (More)
