Dust inflated accretion disc as the origin of the Broad Line Region in Active Galactic Nuclei

31 Oct 2017 Baskin Alexei Laor Ari

The Broad Line Region (BLR) in AGN is composed of dense gas ($\sim 10^{11}$ cm$^{-3}$) on sub-pc scale, which absorbs about 30 per cent of the ionising continuum. The outer size of the BLR is likely set by dust sublimation, and its density by the incident radiation pressure compression (RPC)... (read more)
