We report the GMRT detection of associated HI 21 cm-line absorption in thez = 1.1946 red quasar 3C 190. Most of the absorption is blue-shifted with respect to the systemic redshift. The absorption, at ∼ 647.7 MHz, is broad and complex, spanning a velocity width of ∼ 600 kms−1. Since the core is self-absorbed at this frequency, the absorption is most likely towards the hotspots. Comparison of the radio and deep optical images reveal linear filaments in the optical which overlap with the brighter… 

uGMRT search for cold gas at z ∼ 1–1.4 towards red quasars

We present results from our search for H i 21-cm and OH 18-cm absorption at z ∼ 1–1.4 towards red quasars showing strong Mg ii absorption using upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. The quasars

A search for H i and OH absorption in z ≳ 3 CO emitters

We present the results of a survey for HI 21-cm and OH 18-cm absorption in seven strong CO emitters at z > 3. Despite reaching limits comparable to those required to detect 21-cm absorption at lower

Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope Detections of Two High-opacity Hi 21 cm Absorbers at z ≈ 1.2

We report the discovery of two remarkable high-opacity Hi 21 cm absorbers against low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (AGNs), at z = 1.2166 toward J0229+0044 and at z = 1.1630 toward J0229+0053.

The interstellar and circumnuclear medium of active nuclei traced by H i 21 cm absorption

This review summarises what we have learnt in the last two decades based on H i 21 cm absorption observations about the cold interstellar medium (ISM) in the central regions of active galaxies and

An ASKAP survey for H i absorption towards dust-obscured quasars

Obscuration of quasars by accreted gas and dust, or dusty intervening galaxies, can cause active galactic nuclei (AGN) to be missed in optically selected surveys. Radio observations can overcome

Broad, weak 21 cm absorption in an early-type galaxy: spectral line finding and parametrization for future surveys

ABSTRACT We report conclusive verification of the detection of associated H I 21cm absorption inthe early-type host galaxy of the compact radio source PMNJ2054–4242. We estimate aneffective spectral

This review summarizes recent studies of the cold neutral hydrogen gas associated with galaxies probed via the HI 21-cm absorption line. HI 21-cm absorption against background radio-loud quasars is a

A Search for Intrinsic H i 21 cm and OH 18 cm Absorption toward Compact Radio Sources

We present the results of a large search for intrinsic H i 21 cm and OH 18 cm absorption in 145 compact radio sources in the redshift range 0.02 < z < 3.8 with the Green Bank Telescope. We redetect H

A Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope search for associated H I 21 cm absorption in GHz-peaked-spectrum sources

We report the first detections of associated H{\sc i} 21\,cm absorption in Gigahertz-peaked-spectrum (GPS) sources at high redshifts, $z > 1$, using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). Our



Associated Absorption in Radio Quasars. I. C IV Absorption and the Growth of Radio Sources

We assess the global properties of associated C IV λλ1548, 1550 absorption lines measured in the spectra of radio-loud quasars drawn from a near-complete, low-frequency-selected sample. The

Infrared photometry of z ∼ 1 3C quasars

We present JHKL′ photometry of a complete sample of steep-spectrum radio-loud quasars from the revised 3CR catalogue in the redshift range 0.65z<1.20. After correcting for contributions from emission

A Strong Jet-Cloud Interaction in the Seyfert Galaxy IC 5063: VLBI Observations

We present 21 cm H I line and 13 cm continuum observations, obtained with the Australian Long Baseline Array, of the Seyfert 2 galaxy IC 5063. This object appears to be one of the best examples of

Redshifted Neutral Hydrogen 21 Centimeter Absorption toward Red Quasars

We have searched for redshifted neutral hydrogen 21 cm absorption toward sources from the Stickel et al. "red quasar" subsample. The red quasar subsample is taken from the 1 Jy sample of

The Host Galaxy and Environment of the z = 1.195 Quasar 3C 190*

We present deep imaging and spectroscopic observations of the z = 1.195 quasar 3C 190 and its immediate environment. The quasar is surrounded by an asymmetric, low surface brightness envelope in

Parsec-Scale Radio Structure and Broad Optical Emission Lines in a Complete Sample of 3CR Lobe-dominated Quasars

We present results from VLBI observations of 24 of the 25 lobe-dominated quasars (LDQs) in the 3CR complete sample and from optical spectrophotometry of 14 of these objects. The VLBI observations

Atomic Hydrogen in the Powerful Radio-Infrared Galaxies 4C 12.50 and 3C 433

The 21-cm line of atomic hydrogen was detected in absorption in 4C 12.50 and 3C 433, two galaxies at redshifts beyond 0.1 that have radio powers comparable to that of radio-loud quasars. The column

H i absorption in radio galaxies: effect of orientation or interstellar medium?

Red quasars not so dusty

Webster et al (1995) claimed that up to 80% of QSOs may be obscured by dust. They inferred the presence of this dust from the remarkably broad range of B-K optical-infrared colours of a sample of

Consequences of Dust in Damped Lyman-Alpha Systems

Dust has been detected in damped Lyα systems at high redshifts by two independent methods: the reddening of background quasars and the gas-phase depletion of Cr relative to Zn. Both methods give a
