We present integral field spectroscopy of the inner 700 x 700pc 2 of the Seyfert galaxy Mrk 1066 obtained with Gemini's Near-Infrared Integral Field Spectrograph (NIFS) at a spatial resolution of ≈35 pc. This high spatial resolution allowed us to observe, for the first time in this galaxy, an unresolved dust concentration with mass ~1.4 x 10 -2 M ☉ . This unresolved concentration, with emission well reproduced by a blackbody with temperature ~830 K, is possibly part of the nuclear dusty torus… Expand
