Sgr B2(N): a bipolar outflow and rotating hot core revealed by ALMA.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the results of SiO (2 - 1) and SO2() line observations of Sgr B2(N) made with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array at an angular resolution of ∼2". Our analysis of the SiO and SO2 line emission reveals a bipolar molecular outflow in an east-west direction whose driving source is located at K2. In addition, the SO2line core shows a north-south velocity gradient most probably indicating a hot core of molecular gas rotating around K2. Fractional abundances of SO2and SiO (X(SO2) and X(SiO), respectively) in the outflowing molecular gas are derived from comparisons with the C18O emission. Assuming an excitation temperature of 100±50 K, we calculate X(SO2) =x10–8 and X(SiO) =x10–9. The outflow from Sgr B2(N) K2 is characterized as a young (5x103 yr) and massive (∼2000) but moderately collimated (∼60°) outflow. We also report a possible detection of the SiO () maser emission from the position of K2. If confirmed, it would make Sgr B2(N) the fourth star-forming region associated with SiO masers.
