Title: Cold interstellar medium and quasar-galaxy co-evolution toward the earliest universe



Speaker: Ran Wang 王然

Institute: Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics

Time: 14:30-16:30, Thursday, October, 27

Location: Physics Building 552 (online)


Abstract:

Active star formation and huge amount of molecular gas were detected in the host galaxies of quasars from local to high-z universe, implying co-evolution between the supermassive black holes (SMBHs) and their host galaxies.  

The cold interstellar medium (ISM) in the quasar host galaxies fuels both rapid SMBH accretion   and massive star formation. It provides an ideal tracer to probe the early growth  of the quasar-galaxy systems. The powerful interferometer telescope arrays at submillimeter/millimeter  wavelengths (e.g., ALMA, NOEMA) open unique opportunities to detect and image the  cold ISM from the earliest quasar host galaxies on sub-kpc scale. In this talk,  

I would like to review our recent studies of the physical and dynamical properties  of the cold ISM from the young quasar host galaxies discovered at the highest redshift  and discuss our understanding of SMBH-galaxy co-evolution in the early universe.

Bio:

Research Interest:

I am working on millimeter and radio studies of the co-evolution between supermassive black holes and their host galaxies in the early universe. I have developed a series of observational programs to search and map the dust and gas components in the host galaxies of quasars discovered at z∼6, using the large millimeter and centimeter telescopes, such as ALMA, VLA, JCMT, and NOEMA. I am also interested in observational studies of dusty starburst galaxies in massive large-scale structures associated with quasars and Lyman alpha nebula.
