1988AJ.....95...26G IRAS OBSERVATIONS OF RADIO GALAXIES D. GOLOMBEK AND G. K. MILEY Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Maryland 21218 G. NEUGEBAUER Division of Physics, Mathematics, and Astronomy, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California 91125 Received 26 August 1987; revised 24 September 1987 ABSTRACT IRAS measurements at 25, 60, and 100 microns have been used to analyze the far-infrared properties of radio galaxies. Fifty-eight of the 131 objects surveyed were detected at the level of better than 300 mJy at 60 microns. The most powerful radio galaxies are strong emitters in the far infrared. They have luminosities that are close to those of Markarian Seyfert galaxies, with 50% having 60 micron luminosities > 10^9.8^ L_sun_. Large infrared emission is shown to be correlated with the presence of strong emission lines in the optical spectra. The infrared colors of the strong radio galaxies are similar to those of Markarian Seyferts. Our results are shown to be consistent with recent results implying that the host galaxies of radio sources are not normal giant ellipticals and that galaxy-galaxy interactions may power luminous radio sources. Finally, some similarities between powerful radio galaxies and powerful infrared galaxies are noted and briefly discussed.
