Testing the evolutionary link between submillimetre galaxies and quasars : CO observations of QSOs at z ∼ 2

Abstract

We have used the IRAM Plateau de Bure millimeter interferometer and the UKIRT 1– 5μm Imager Spectrometer (UIST) to test the connection between the major phases of spheroid growth and nuclear accretion by mapping CO emission in nine submillimetredetected QSOs at z = 1.7–2.6 with black hole (BH) masses derived from near-infrared spectroscopy. When combined… (More)
