Extragalactic class i methanol maser: A new probe for starbursts and feedback of galaxies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We report progress on research relating to 36.2 GHz extragalactic class I methanol masers, including a review of published work and new observations at high angular resolution. These observations reveal that extragalactic class I masers are excited in shocked gas and maybe associated with starbursts, galactic-scale outflows from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) feedback, or the inner-end region of the galactic bar. The current observational results suggests that extragalactic class I methanol masers provide a new probe for starbursts and feedback in active galaxies.
