There is X-ray, optical, and mid-infrared imaging and spectroscopic evidence that the late-stage ultraluminous infrared galaxy merger Mrk 273 hosts a powerful active galactic nucleus (AGN). However, the exact location of the AGN and the nature of the nucleus have been difficult to determine due to dust obscuration and the limited wavelength coverage of available high-resolution data. Here we present near-infrared integral-field spectra and images of the nuclear region of Mrk 273 taken with… 

A Compton-thick nucleus in the dual active galactic nuclei of Mrk 266

We present the results from our analysis of NuSTAR data of the luminous infrared galaxy Mrk 266, which contains two nuclei, south-western (SW) and north-eastern (NE), which were resolved in previous

Shocked gas in IRAS F17207-0014: ISM collisions and outflows

We combine optical and near-infrared adaptive optics-assisted integral field observations of the merging ultraluminous infrared galaxies IRAS F17207-0014 from the Wide-Field Spectrograph and

Testing a double AGN hypothesis for Mrk 273

The ultra-luminous infrared galaxy (ULIRG) Mrk 273 contains two infrared nuclei, N and SW, separated by 1 arcsecond. A Chandraobservation has identified the SW nucleus as an absorbed X-ray source

KCWI Observations of the Extended Nebulae in Mrk 273

Ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs) represent a critical stage in the merger-driven evolution of galaxies when active galactic nucleus (AGN) activity is common and AGN feedback is expected. We

Molecular gas in the northern nucleus of Mrk 273: Physical and chemical properties of the disc and its outflow

Aiming to characterise the properties of the molecular gas in the ultra-luminous infrared galaxy Mrk 273 and its outflow, we used the NOEMA interferometer to image the dense-gas molecular tracers

Extended warm gas in the ULIRG Mrk273: Galactic outflows and tidal debris

We present new HST/ACS medium- and narrow-band images and optical Isaac Newton Telescope long-slit spectra of the merging system Mrk273. The HST observations sample the [OIII] 4959,5007 emission from

Elliptical Galaxy in the Making: The Dual Active Galactic Nuclei and Metal-enriched Halo of Mrk 273

A systematic analysis of the X-ray emission from the nearby ultraluminous infrared galaxy Mrk 273 was carried out by combining new 200 ks Chandra data with archived 44 ks data. The active galactic

THE NATURE OF ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEI WITH VELOCITY OFFSET EMISSION LINES

We obtained Keck/OSIRIS near-IR adaptive optics-assisted integral-field spectroscopy to probe the morphology and kinematics of the ionized gas in four velocity-offset active galactic nuclei (AGNs)

The energy source and dynamics of infrared luminous galaxy ESO 148-IG002

ESO 148-IG002 represents a transformative stage of galaxy evolution, containing two galaxies at close separation which are currently coalescing into a single galaxy. We present integral field data of

Keck OSIRIS AO LIRG Analysis (KOALA): Feedback in the Nuclei of Luminous Infrared Galaxies

The role of feedback in triggering or quenching star formation and hence driving galaxy evolution can be directly studied with high-resolution integral field observations. The manifestation of

The Extreme Compact Starburst in Markarian 273

These images provide strong support for the hypothesis that the luminosity of the northern source is dominated by an extreme compact starburst, and the southwest near-IR nucleus is not detected in high-resolution radio continuum images.
