"Multi-phase Nature of a Radiation-driven Fountain with Nuclear Starburst in a Low-mass Active Galactic Nucleus"
Astrophysical Journal vol.828, L19 (2016)
"Radiation-driven fountain" is a new mechanism to explain dynamics and structures of the interstellar medium around AGNs. In this paper, the model is applied to the nearest Seyfert 2 galaxy, Circinus galaxy. This figure shows the mid-infrared emission from the central region of Circinus galaxy, which is calculated 3-D raditive transfer simulation.
