J/AJ/133/496       OH megamasers infrared photometry             (Chen+, 2007)

Photometric study of galaxies with OH megamasers in the infrared. Chen P.S., Shan H.G., Gao Y.F. <Astron. J., 133, 496-503 (2007)> =2007AJ....133..496C
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Masers ; Galaxies, photometry ; Galaxies, IR Keywords: galaxies: nuclei - galaxies: starburst - infrared: galaxies - masers - radio lines: galaxies Abstract: OH megamasers are the most luminous masers in the universe. The total of 109 OH megamaser (OHM) galaxies known so far have been collected, and cross-identifications of those OHM galaxies with Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) sources are made in this paper. Using 2MASS (Cat. II/246) and IRAS (Cat. II/125, II/156) data, the infrared properties of OHM-detected and non-detected sources are compared. File Summary:
