Extreme CII Flux Ratios in Type 2 Quasars at z∼2

A. Humphrey, L. Binette

Abstract
We discuss the failure of canonical AGN photoionization models to explain the CII lambda1335 A to CII]lambda2326 A flux ratio in the extended narrow line regions of type 2 radio loud quasars at z∼2.5. We propose kappa-distributed electron energies as a natural solution. Low gas metallicity, shock ionization or continuum fluorescence provide plausible, but less natural, solutions.
