The AGN-Starburst Connection in Nearby Seyfert Galaxies
Using integral field spectroscopy, we detected the broad features of massive Wolf-Rayet stars in the core of three Seyfert galaxies. The observed high value of the WR/O number ratio is a clear signature of a young and powerful starburst. The star-forming regions are distributed in an arc/ring-like structure around the AGN, at a distance of about 200 pc. These are the first spatially-resolved detections of massive starbursts so close of an AGN.
