We report new IRAM/PdBI, JCMT/SCUBA-2, and VLA observations of the ultraluminous quasar SDSS J010013.02+280225.8 (hereafter, J0100+2802) at z = 6.3, which hosts the most massive supermassive black hole (SMBH), , that is known at z > 6. We detect the [C ii] 158 μm fine structure line and molecular CO(6-5) line and continuum emission at 353, 260, and 3 GHz from this quasar. The CO(2-1) line and the underlying continuum at 32 GHz are also marginally detected. The [C ii] and CO detections suggest…

Spatially Resolved Interstellar Medium and Highly Excited Dense Molecular Gas in the Most Luminous Quasar at z = 6.327
Among more than 200 quasars known at z ≳ 6, only one object, J0100+2802 (z = 6.327), was found hosting a >1010 M⊙ supermassive black hole. In order to investigate the host galaxy properties of

Ionized and Atomic Interstellar Medium in the z = 6.003 Quasar SDSS J2310+1855
Observing the interstellar medium (ISM) in the z ≳ 6 quasar host galaxies is essential for understanding the coevolution between supermassive black holes and their hosts. To probe the gas physical
