The Mid-Infrared Narrow-Line Baldwin Effect Revealed By Spitzer
We present our discovery of a narrow-line Baldwin effect, an anticorrelation between the equivalent width (EW) of a line and the flux of the associated continuum, in 5-20 μm mid-infrared (mid-IR) lines from a sample of 68 active galactic nuclei (AGNs), located at z < 0.5, observed with the Infrared Spectrograph on the Spitzer Space Telescope. Our analysis reveals a clear anticorrelation between the EW of the [S iv] 10.51 μm, [Ne ii] 12.81 μm, and [Ne iii] 15.56 μm lines and their mid-IRdoi:10.15781/t2s231 fatcat:qty2ru37afg4jgfox244nelg7a
