Observations of Active Galactic Nuclei with Next Generation Optical Interferometers
Technology roadmap for future interferometric facilities, Proceedings of the European Interferometry Initiative Workshop organized in the context of the 2005 Join European and National Astronomy Meeting "Distant Worlds", 6 - 8 July 2005, Liège University, Institute of Astrophysics, Edited by J. Surdej, D. Caro, and A. Detal
Next Generation Optical Interferometers with a spatial resolution of 0.1 mas in the K band will lead to major steps forward in our understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei. In this paper, I will show how they can be used to study the morphology of the obscuring torus, the geometry and kinematics of the Broad Line Region, Supermassive Black Holes in galactic nuclei and the cosmological evolution of their relations with the host galaxies.
