The ultraviolet spectra of radio-loud and radio-quiet quasars

Francis, Paul; Hooper, Eric J.; Impey, Chris D.


The rest-frame ultraviolet spectral properties of matched samples of radio-loud, radio-moderate, and radio-quiet quasars are investigated, using quasars drawn from the Large Bright QSO Survey. We confirm the absence of spectral differences between radio-loud and radio-quiet quasars at rest-frame wavelengths longward of 1600 Á, as reported by previous authors. However, at shorter wavelengths we find a significant difference: radio-loud quasars have narrower (96% confidence),...[Show more]
