ALMA Observations Show Major Mergers Among the Host Galaxies of Fast-growing, High-redshift Supermassive Black Holes
ALMA is a partnership of ESO (representing its member states), NSF (USA) and NINS (Japan), together with NRC (Canada), NSC and ASIAA (Taiwan), and KASI (Republic of Korea), in cooperation with theExpand
The WISSH quasars Project: II. Giant star nurseries in hyper-luminous quasars
Studying the coupling between the energy output produced by the central quasar and the host galaxy is fundamental to fully understand galaxy evolution. Quasar feedback is indeed supposed toExpand
SMM J04135+10277: a distant QSO–starburst system caught by ALMA
The gas content of galaxies is a key factor for their growth, starting from star formation and black hole accretion to galaxy mergers. Thus, characterizing its properties through observations ofExpand
Molecular gas content in obscured AGN at z > 1.
Aims. The standard active galactic nuclei (AGN)-galaxy co-evolutionary scenario predicts a phase of deeply ‘buried’ supermassive black hole growth coexisting with a starburst (SB) before feedbackExpand
UV-luminous, star-forming hosts of z ∼ 2 reddened quasars in the dark energy survey
We present the first rest-frame UV population study of 17 heavily reddened, high-luminosity [E(B − V)QSO ≳ 0.5; Lbol > 1046 erg s−1] broad-line quasars at 1.5 < z < 2.7. We combine the first year ofExpand
Molecular outflow and feedback in the obscured quasar XID2028 revealed by ALMA
We imaged, with ALMA and ARGOS/LUCI, the molecular gas and dust and stellar continuum in XID2028, which is an obscured quasi-stellar object (QSO) at z = 1.593, where the presence of a massive outflowExpand
The WISSH quasars project. V. ALMA reveals the assembly of a giant galaxy around a z=4.4 hyper-luminous QSO
We present an ALMA high-resolution observation of the 840 um continuum and [CII] line emission in the WISE-SDSS selected hyper-luminous (WISSH) QSO J1015+0020 at z~4.4. Our analysis reveals anExpand
The multiwavelength properties of red QSOs: Evidence for dusty winds as the origin of QSO reddening
Fundamental differences in the radio properties of red quasars (QSOs), as compared to blue QSOs, have been recently discovered, positioning them as a potential key population in the evolution ofExpand

  • 2019
We present ALMA observations of the CO(1-0) line and 3-mm continuum emission in eight ultraluminous infrared (IR) quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) at z = 0.06-0.19. All eight IR QSO hosts are clearlyExpand
Observing AGN feedback with CO intensity mapping.
Current models of galaxy formation require star formation in high-mass galaxies to be limited by poorly understood mechanisms of quasar feedback. Feedback processes can be studied by examining theExpand
