The [C ii]λ158 µm line is one of the strongest far-infrared (FIR) lines and an important coolant in the interstellar medium of galaxies that is accessible out to high redshifts. The excitation of [Cii] is complex and can best be studied in detail at low redshifts. Here we report the discovery of the highest global [Cii] excess with respect to the FIR luminosity in the nearby AGN host galaxy HE 1353−1917. This galaxy is exceptional among a sample of five targets because the AGN ionization...[Show more]
