Hidden Quasars in Ultraluminous Infrared Galaxies

Abstract

Many ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs) are powered by quasars hidden in the center, but many are also powered by starbursts. A simply diagnostic diagram is proposed that can identify obscured quasars in ULIRGs by their high-ionization emission lines ([O III]λ5007/Hβ ≳ 5), and “warm” IR color (f 25/f 60 ≳ 0.25).
