Abstract:We report progress on research relating to 36.2 GHz extragalactic class I methanol masers, including a review of published work and new observations at high angular resolution. These observations reveal that extragalactic class I masers are excited in shocked gas and maybe associated with starbursts, galactic-scale outflows from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) feedback, or the inner-end region of the galactic bar. The current observational results suggests that extragalactic class I methanol masers provide a new… 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.
