A Multi-wavelength look at a sample of Compact Radio Galaxies

Compact radio galaxies are a particularly interesting class of active galactic nuclei, with newly born radio structures (jets and lobes) fully confined within their host galaxies. They can provide information on the processes that lead to the production of relativistic jets, as well as insight into the complex dynamics of feedback between evolving supermassive black holes and interstellar medium. Recently work was published by an international group, led by researchers at the Astronomical Observatory of Jagiellonian University, on the infrared X-ray properties of a sample of 29 of this type of galaxy.
