Snapshots of structure formation of a 'Cosmic Beast': Full-scale observations and simulations of MACS J0717.5+3745 M. Jauzac 신윤경 A massive galaxy cluster (z = 0.54) surrounded by 11 merging substructures. arXiv:1711.01324
2017/10/25 Hubble Space Telescope Imaging of the Active Dwarf Galaxy RGG 118 Vivienne F. Baldassare 박대성 The nearby dwarf galaxy (RGG 118) hosting an active black hole of $\sim 5 \times 10^{4} M_{\odot}$ is imaged with HST/WFC3 to characterize its host galaxy, which is consequently found to have a pseudobulge using GALFIT modeling. They have shown that its black hole is under-massive with respect to the BH-galaxy scaling relations defined by classical bulge samples, supporting the scenario that BHs in pseudobulge systems grow primarily via secular processes. arXiv:1709.07884

Polarization of the changing-look quasar J1011+5442 D. Hutsemékers 박대성 The polarization observation for a recently discovered changing-look (broad-line disappeared over a timescale of a few years) quasar (J1011+5442) produces the linear polarization degree of $p=0.15\pm0.22\%$, which is equivalent to null polarization. This result supports the scenario that the spectral change is due to a variation of accretion rate and is against the variable dust obscuration scenario. arXiv:1707.05540

Growing supermassive black holes in the late stages of galaxy mergers are heavily obscured C. Ricci 박대성 A study on the relation between AGN obscuration and galaxy mergers. By analysing the broad-band X-ray spectra of a sample of 30 U/LIRGs in different merger stages, they showed that the fraction of CT AGNs ($N_{\rm H}>10^{24}$ cm$^{-2}$) in late merger galaxies is higher ($f_{\rm CT}=65$%) than local hard X-ray selected AGNs (mostly isolated galaxies; $f_{\rm CT}=27$%). All AGNs of the sample in late merger galaxies have $N_{\rm H} \geq 10^{23}$ cm$^{-2}$, which implies that obscuring material covers 95% of the X-ray source (richer in gas and dust). arXiv:1701.04825

2017/4/19 Near-Infrared MOSFIRE Spectra of Dusty Star-Forming Galaxies at 0.2<z<4 C.M. Casey 박대성 Spectroscopically confirming 450$\mu$m and 850$\mu$m selected dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs) with Keck MOSFIRE. 31 sources out of 114 targets were confirmed. This low rate of confirmation is due to intrinsically high rest-frame optical obscuration (too weak Halpha to be detected) and limited sensitivity to certain $z$ ranges (MOSFIRE H and K bands). Large millimeter survey program is necessary to spectroscopically characterizing the high-$z$ DSFGs. arXiv:1703.10168

2017/5/17 Obscured Active Galactic Nuclei triggered in compact star-forming galaxies Yu-Yen Chang 박대성 obscured AGN hosts (182 at $z \le 1.5$ in COSMOS field) are more compact than normal star-forming sources at similar redshift and stellar mass. since their sample has low merger fraction and does not show highly perturbed morphology, they suggest that obscured AGNs are primarily hosted by star-forming galaxies having undergone a process of dynamical contraction (central gas compaction triggered by intense gas inflow introducing violent disc instabilities).

plausible mechanisms for the origin of BCG alignments: 1) anisotropic infall of matter into clusters along preferred directions. 2) primordial alignment. 3) gravitational torques that make it aligned with the local tidal field.

Discovery of a lensed ultrabright submillimeter galaxy at z=2.0439 A. Díaz-Sánchez 박대성 By cross-correlating $ALLWISE$ and $Planck$ catalogs, they found a lensed (lensing amplification factor of 11) ultrabright ($L_{\rm IR} \sim 10^{13}L_{\odot}$; SFR $\sim 500-2000$ $M_{\odot}$/yr) SMG (named to Cosmic Eyebrow) at $z=2.044$. The follow-up optical (rest-frame UV) and archival NIR (rest-frame opt) spectroscopic data revealed that they are consistent with a typical absorption line spectrum of a starburst galaxy and typical H$\alpha$ features of other well known SMGs. arXiv:1707.02454
