" Why are some quasars radio loud: Observations of Quasar Central Structure"

ABSTRACT: With recent application of techniques of gravitational microlensing and reverberation analysis, we find that the luminous central structure seen near the event horizons of quasars supports the picture of a central black hole object with hair. I will report the observations and show images of the luminous structures found around the quasar central engines. .
