Infrared photometry of the nebulosity around quasars


Measurements of the nebulosity around quasars have been carried out in the near-infrared. The colors of the host galaxies found in these observations are consistent with those of normal galaxies. The luminosities are also similar to those of normal galaxies but are slightly brighter than average.
