Spaxel analysis: Probing the physics of star formation in ultraluminous infrared galaxies

Dopita, Michael; Rich, J.; Vogt, Frederic; Kewley, Lisa; Ho, I-Ting; Basurah, Hassan; Ali, Alaa; Amer, Morsi A.


This paper presents a detailed spectral pixel (spaxel) analysis of the ten Luminous Infrared Galaxies (LIRGs) previously observed with the Wide Field Spectrograph (WiFeS), an integral field spectrograph mounted on the ANU 2.3 m telescope, and for which an abundance gradient analysis has already been presented by Rich et al. (Astrophys. J., 753:5, 2012). Here we use the strong emission line analysis techniques developed by Dopita et al. (Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser., accepted, 2013) to measure the...[Show more]
