J/AJ/131/1948     Narrow line Seyfert 1 galaxies in the FBQS     (Whalen+, 2006)

Optical properties of radio-selected narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies. Whalen D.J., Laurent-Muehleisen S.A., Moran E.C., Becker R.H. <Astron. J., 131, 1948-1960 (2006)> =2006AJ....131.1948W
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, Seyfert ; QSOs ; Spectroscopy Keywords: galaxies: Seyfert - quasars: emission lines Abstract: We present results from the analysis of the optical spectra of 47 radio-selected narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies. These objects are a subset of the First Bright Quasar Survey (Cat. J/AJ/112/407) and were initially detected at 20cm (flux density limit 1Jy) in the VLA FIRST Survey. File Summary:
