NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2001MNRAS.326.1467D On the lack of cold dust in IRAS P09104+4109 and IRAS F15307+3252: their spectral energy distributions and implications for finding dusty AGNs at high redshift J.R. Deane and Neil Trentham Accepted 2001 May 22. Received 2001 May 2; in original form 2001 April 4 ABSTRACT We present upper limits on the 850-micron and 450-micron fluxes of the warm hyperluminous (bolometric luminosity L_bol_ > 10^13^ L_sun_) galaxies IRAS P09104+4109 (z = 0.442) and IRAS F15307+3252 (z = 0.926), derived from measurements using the SCUBA bolometer array on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. Hot luminous infrared sources like these are thought to differ from more normal cold ultraluminous infrared (L_bol_ > 10^12^ L_sun_) galaxies in that they derive most of their bolometric luminosities from dusty active galactic nuclei (AGNs) as opposed to starbursts. Such hot, dusty AGNs at high redshift are thought to be responsible for much of the mass accretion of the Universe that is in turn responsible for the formation of the supermassive black holes seen in the centres of local galaxies. The galaxy IRAS P09104+4109 is also unusual in that it is a cD galaxy in the centre of a substantial cooling-flow cluster, not an isolated interacting galaxy like most ultraluminous infrared galaxies. Previously it was known to have large amounts of hot (T > 50 K) dust from IRAS observations. We now show that the contribution of cold dust to the bolometric luminosity is less than 3 per cent. Most ultraluminous infrared galaxies possess large amounts of cold dust, and it is now known that some cooling-flow cluster cD galaxies do as well. Yet this object, which is an extreme example of both, does not have enough cold gas to contribute significantly to the bolometric luminosity. We outline physical reasons why this could have happened. We then provide a discussion of strategies for finding hot dusty AGNs, given the limitations on submillimetre surveys implied by this work.
