High spatial resolution mid-infrared spectroscopy of the starburst galaxies NGC 3256 , II Zw 40 and Henize 2-10 ⋆


Aims. In order to show the importance of high spatial resolution observations of extra-galactic sources when compared to observations obtained with larger apertures such as ISO, we present N-band spectra (8–13 µm) of some locations in three starburst galaxies. In particular, the two galactic nuclei of the spiral galaxy NGC 3256, the compact IR supernebula… (More)
