Following black hole scaling relations through gas-rich mergers

Medling, Anne; U, Vivian; Max, Claire; Sanders, David; Armus, Lee; Holden, B; Mieda, Etsuko; Wright, Shelley A.; Larkin, J


We present black hole mass measurements from kinematic modeling of high-spatial resolution integral field spectroscopy of the inner regions of nine nearby (ultra-)luminous infrared galaxies in a variety of merger stages. These observations were taken with OSIRIS and laser guide star adaptive optics on the Keck I and Keck II telescopes, and reveal gas and stellar kinematics inside the spheres of influence of these supermassive black holes. We find that this sample of black holes are overmassive...[Show more]
