2011A&A...531L..11B The extent of dust in NGC 891 from Herschel/SPIRE images Bianchi, S.; Xilouris, E. M. Abstract. We analyse Herschel/SPIRE images of the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 891 at 250, 350, and 500 micron. Using a 3D radiative transfer model we confirm that the dust has radial fall-off similar to the stellar disk. The dust disk shows a break at about 12 kpc from the centre, where the profile becomes steeper. Beyond this break, emission can be traced up to 90% of the optical disk on the NE side. To the SW, we confirm dust emission associated with the extended, asymmetric HI disk, previously detected by the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO). This emission is marginally consistent with the large diffuse dust disk inferred from radiative transfer fits to optical images. No excess emission is found above the plane beyond that of the thin, unresolved, disk. Key words: galaxies: individual: NGC 891, galaxies: spiral, dust, extinction, submillimeter: galaxies, radiative transfer
