NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1989MNRAS.237..673N A Search for megamaser galaxies R.P. Norris, F.F. Gardner and J.B. Whiteoak Division of Radiophysics, CSIRO, P0 Box 76, Epping, NSW 2121, Australia David A. Allen and P.F. Roche Anglo-Australian Observatory, P0 Box 296, Epping, NSW 2121, Australia Accepted 1988 September 28. Received 1988 September 21; in original form 1988 June 27 Summary. We report the results of a search for OH megamaser emission from a sample of 32 galaxies selected from the IRAS Point Source Catalog on the basis of their infrared properties. For each galaxy (other than those few already observed elsewhere) we have obtained an optical redshift and have searched for both OH and H I emission. The search yielded one new OH megamaser galaxy and H I was detected towards nine objects. We conclude that there are unlikely to be any OH megamasers in the Southern Hemisphere with flux densities comparable to that of Arp 220 (280 mJy), although there may be a population of weaker megamasers. From the statistics of our search we conclude that no special conditions are required to explain the known OH megamasers other than those expected in a cool, dusty, active galaxy. We also append a list of non-detections from our earlier searches for megamaser emission.
