Abstract (from CDS):

We present 15 images from the global mm-VLBI sessions in 1990 April at 100GHz and 1993 April at 86GHz. These observations probe the central engines of the 16 observed AGN's with up to 50 µas resolution. Among other sources previously observed with λ3mm VLBI we present the first λ3mm maps of 0735+178, 0748+126, 1055+018, 2145+067, and CTA102, in total we have been able to image 13 out of the 16 observed sources. 6 out of the 13 imaged sources observed exhibit curvature and rapid structural changes, although the low dynamic range in two thirds of the maps limits the detection of weak features. Most of the sources have unresolved cores even at this high resolution. There is substantial evidence that the observed sources can be grouped into two general groups: A misaligned population with parsec scale jets in the form of low pitch helices and an aligned population with straight jets with small changes in PA due to intrinsic bends.
