Abstract (from CDS):

We have made IRAS (12, 25, and 60µm) maximum entropy images of the three known soft gamma repeaters SGR 0526-66, SGR 1806-20, and SGR 1900+14. In addition we have obtained a high-resolution 10µm image of SGR 1900+14 using TIMMI at the ESO 3.6m telescope. All three SGRs have associated with them an infrared source. The infrared emission associated with SGR 0526-66 likely originates from heated dust in the supernova remnant N49. The infrared properties of the two galactic SGRs are similar; both are unresolved at 12 and 25µm, and extended at 60µm. The relation of these infrared sources (if any) to the SGRs is as yet unclear.
