The Milliarcsecond Structure of Radio Galaxies and Quasars


Hybrid maps of the nuclei of radio galaxies and quasars show a variety of morphologies. Among compact sources, two structures are common: an asymmetric, "core-jet" morphology (eg, 3C 273), and an "equal double" morphology with two separated, similar components (eg, CTD 93). The nuclei of extended, double radio galaxies generally have a core-jet morphology with the jet directed toward one of the outer components.
