    • OPTICAL PROPER MOTION MEASUREMENTS OF THE M87 JET: NEW RESULTS FROM THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE 

      Meyer, Eileen T.; Sparks, W. B.; Biretta, J. A.; Anderson, Jay; Sohn, Sangmo Tony; Marel, Roeland P. van der; Norman, Colin; Nakamura, Masanori (IOP, 2013-08-22)
      We report new results from a Hubble Space Telescope archival program to study proper motions in the optical jet of the nearby radio galaxy M87. Using over 13 yr of archival imaging, we reach accuracies below 0.1c in measuring ...
    • Relativistic Jets in the Accretion & Collimation Zone: New Challenges Enabled by New Instruments 

      Perlman, Eric S.; Birkinshaw, Mark; Kadler, Matthias; Komissarov, Serguei; Lister, Matthew; Meier, David; Meyer, Eileen; Nakamura, Masanori; Nyland, Kristina; O’Dea, Christopher; Worrall, Diana; Zdziarski, Andrzej (2019-02-26)
      Jets are a ubiquitous part of the accretion process, seen in a wide variety of objects ranging from active galaxies (AGN) to X-ray binary stars and even newly formed stars. AGN jets are accelerated by the supermassive black ...
