The Survey of Nearby Nuclei with STIS (SUNNS): Emission-Line Nuclei at Hubble Space Telescope Resolution

Abstract

We present results from a program of optical spectroscopy for 23 nearby galaxies with emission-line nuclei. This investigation takes advantage of the spatial resolution of the Hubble Space Telescope to study the structure and energetics of the central ∼ 10− 20 pc, and the resulting data have value for quantifying central black hole masses, star formation… (More)
