The peculiar emission line spectra of core-Extremely Red BOSS Quasars at $z\sim$2-3: orientation and/or evolution?

10 Jan 2020 Martin Montse Villar Perna Michele Humphrey Andrew Rodriguez Nieves Castro Binette Luc Gonzalez Pablo Perez Mateos Silvia Lavers Antonio Cabrera

Core-extremely red quasars (core-ERQ) have been proposed to represent an intermediate evolutionary phase in which a heavily obscured quasar is blowing out the circumnuclear interstellar medium with very energetic outflows prior to becoming an optical quasar. We revise the general UV and optical emission line properties of core-ERQ in the context of the AGN orientation-based unification scenario... (read more)
