Abstract:AbstractWe report astrometric results for seven 6.7 GHz CH3OH and one 22 GHz H2O masers in the Perseus arm with VLBA and VERA observations. Among the eight sources, we succeeded in obtaining trigonometric parallaxes for all sources, except G098.03+1.44 at 6.7 GHz band. By combining our results with previous astrometry results (Choi et al. 2014), we determined an arm width of 0.41 kpc and a pitch angle of 8.2 ± 2.5 deg for the Perseus arm. By using a large sample of the Perseus arm (26 sources), we examined the… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
