On the Origin of Radio Core Emission in Radio-quiet Quasars

Abstract

We present a model for the radio emission from radio-quiet quasar nuclei. We show that a thermal origin for the high brightness temperature, flat spectrum point sources (known as radio “cores”) is possible provided the emitting region is hot and optically-thin. We hence demonstrate that opticallythin bremsstrahlung from a slow, dense disk wind can make a… (More)
