NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2015MNRAS.452.3776G Herschel-ATLAS: the connection between star formation and AGN activity in radio-loud and radio-quiet active galaxies Gurkan, G.; Hardcastle, M. J.; Jarvis, M. J.; Smith, D. J. B.; Bourne, N.; Dunne, L.; Maddox, S.; Ivison, R. J.; Fritz, J. Abstract. We examine the relationship between star formation and active galactic nuclei (AGN) activity by constructing matched samples of local (0 < z < 0.6) radio-loud and radio-quiet AGN in the Herschel-Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey fields. Radio-loud AGN are classified as high-excitation and low-excitation radio galaxies using their emission lines and WISE 22-micron luminosity. AGN accretion and jet powers in these active galaxies are traced by [O III] emission-line and radio luminosity, respectively. Star formation rates (SFRs) and specific star formation rates (SSFRs) were derived using Herschel 250-micron luminosity and stellar mass measurements from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey-Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics-John Hopkins University catalogue. In the past, star formation studies of AGN have mostly focused on high-redshift sources to observe the thermal dust emission that peaks in the far-infrared, which limited the samples to powerful objects. However, with Herschel we can expand this to low redshifts. Our stacking analyses show that SFRs and SSFRs of both radio-loud and radio-quiet AGN increase with increasing AGN power but that radio-loud AGN tend to have lower SFR. Additionally, radio-quiet AGN are found to have approximately an order of magnitude higher SSFRs than radio-loud AGN for a given level of AGN power. The difference between the star formation properties of radio-loud and -quiet AGN is also seen in samples matched in stellar mass. Key words: galaxies: active, infrared: galaxies
