Observations of quasar hosts with adaptive optics at Lick Observatory

Abstract

We present near-infrared H-band observations of the hosts of three z ∼ 1 quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey made with the adaptive optics system at Lick Observatory. We derive a PSF for each quasar and model the host plus quasar nucleus to obtain magnitudes and approximate scale sizes for the host galaxies. We find our recovered host galaxies are… (More)
