A Search for H 2 0 Maser Emission in Southern Active Galactic Nuclei and Star-forming Galaxies: Discovery of a Maser in the Edge-on Galaxy IRAS F01063-8034

We report the cumulative results of five surveys for H2O maser emission at 1.35 cm wavelength in 131 active galactic nuclei (AGNs) and star-forming galaxies, conducted at the Parkes Observatory between 1993 and 1998. We detected one new maser, in the edge-on galaxy IRAS F01063-8034, which exhibits a single ∼0.1 Jy spectral feature at 4282 ± 6 km s-1 (heliocentric) with an unusually large 54 ± 16 km s-1 half-power full width. The centroid velocity of the emission increased to 4319.6 ± 0.6 km s-1...[Show more]
