Near- and far infrared emission of Seyfert 2 galaxies and various types of star-forming galaxies.


Abstract (from CDS):

In order to study the origin of the near and far infrared emission of Seyfert 2 galaxies, we carried out near (J, H, K) infrared photometry of a small sample of Seyfert 2 and various types of star-forming galaxies, selected according to a criterium developed previously (papers I and II) that reveals enhanced star formation. All the galaxies have also good detections in IRAS bands 25, 60 and 100 µm. We found a strong correlation between all the near and far luminosities for the Seyfert 2 galaxies. In order to explain the position of the galaxies in the J-H, H-K diagram as well as the above mentioned correlation, we conclude that their near and far infrared emission is dominated by a post-starburst emission.
