I am searching for a simple, modern catalog of Active Galactic Nuclei. I expected a catalog similar to this or this, but instead found that they contain observed spectra instead of properties like the mass, luminosity, SMBH mass, etc (take SDSS for example).

So, my question is, Is there any modern catalog of AGN and their properties?

  • $\begingroup$ is something like aanda.org/articles/aa/full_html/2010/10/aa14188-10/… useful? Catalogues tend to contain observable information, and this one has position, luminosity (in U, B V bands) and redshift. It doesn't have mass, because that can't be observed. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @James thanks for the link, though it was not what I was looking for. I didn't know that SMBH mass are not a part of the catalogs. $\endgroup$
