We present multi-frequency (1–8 GHz) Very Large Array data, combined with VIsible MultiObject Spectrograph integral field unit data and Hubble Space Telescope imaging, of a z = 0.085 radio-quiet type 2 quasar (with L1.4 GHz ≈ 5 × 1023 W Hz−1 and LAGN ≈ 2 × 1045 erg s−1). Due to the morphology of its emission-line region, the target (J1430+1339) has been referred to as the “Teacup” active galactic nucleus (AGN) in the literature. We identify “bubbles” of radio emission that are extended ≈10–12… 

Storm in a Teacup: X-Ray View of an Obscured Quasar and Superbubble

We present the X-ray properties of the “Teacup AGN” (SDSS J1430+1339), a z = 0.085 type 2 quasar that is interacting dramatically with its host galaxy. Spectral modeling of the central quasar reveals

Galaxy wide radio induced feedback in a radio quiet quasar

We report the discovery of a radio-quiet type 2 quasar (SDSS J165315.06+234943.0 nicknamed the ‘Beetle’ at z = 0.103) with unambiguous evidence for active galactic nucleus (AGN) radio-induced

The quasar feedback survey: discovering hidden Radio-AGN and their connection to the host galaxy ionized gas

We present the first results from the Quasar Feedback Survey, a sample of 42 z < 0.2, [O iii] luminous AGNs ( L[O III] > 1042.1 ergs s−1) with moderate radio luminosities (i.e. L1.4GHz > 1023.4 W

A 100 kpc nebula associated with the `Teacup' fading quasar

We report the discovery of a ~100 kpc ionized nebula associated with the radio quiet type 2 quasar (QSO2) nicknamed the "Teacup" (z=0.085). The giant nebula is among the largest known around active

Prevalence of radio jets associated with galactic outflows and feedback from quasars

We present 1–7 GHz high-resolution radio imaging (VLA and e-MERLIN) and spatially resolved ionized gas kinematics for 10 z < 0.2 type 2 ‘obscured’ quasars (log [LAGN/erg s−1] ≳ 45) with moderate

We present the first results from the KMOS (K-band Multi-Object Spectrograph) AGN (active galactic nuclei) Survey at High redshift (KASHz), a VLT/KMOS integral-field spectroscopic (IFS) survey of z ≳

Winds as the origin of radio emission in z = 2.5 radio-quiet extremely red quasars

Most active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are radio-quiet, and the origin of their radio emission is not well-understood. One hypothesis is that this radio emission is a by-product of quasar-driven winds.

The radio properties of high-excitation radio galaxies with intermediate radio powers

In the past decade, high-sensitivity radio surveys have revealed that the local radio active galactic nucleus population is dominated by moderate-to-low power sources with emission that is compact

An infrared view of AGN feedback in a type-2 quasar: the case of the Teacup galaxy

We present near-infrared integral field spectroscopy data obtained with VLT/SINFONI of "the Teacup galaxy". The nuclear K-band (1.95-2.45 micron) spectrum of this radio-quiet type-2 quasar reveals a

We present HST/ACS narrowband images of a low-z sample of 19 3C radio galaxies to study the Hα and [O iii] emissions from the narrow-line region. Based on nuclear emission-line ratios, we divide the
