NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2017MNRAS.471L..41R Detection of faint broad emission lines in type 2 AGNs - III. On the M_BH_-sigma_*_ relation of type 2 AGNs Ricci, F.; La Franca, F.; Marconi, A.; Onori, F.; Shankar, F.; Schneider, R.; Sani, E.; Bianchi, S.; Bongiorno, A.; Brusa, M.; Fiore, F.; Maiolino, R.; Vignali, C. Abstract. Type 2 active galactic nuclei (AGNs) represent the majority of the AGN population. However, due to the difficulties in measuring their black hole (BH) masses, it is still unknown whether they follow the same BH mass-host galaxy scaling relations valid for quiescent galaxies and type 1 AGNs. Here, we present the locus of type 2 AGNs having virial BH mass estimates in the M_BH_-sigma_*_ plane. Our analysis shows that the BH masses of type 2 AGNs are ~0.9 dex smaller than type 1 AGNs at sigma_*_ ~ 185 km s^-1^, regardless of the (early/late) AGN host galaxy morphology. Equivalently, type 2 AGN host galaxies have stellar velocity dispersions ~0.2 dex higher than type 1 AGN hosts at M_BH_ ~ 10^7^ M_sun_. Key words: galaxies: active, galaxies: nuclei, quasars: emission lines, infrared: galaxies, X-rays: galaxies
