    Abstract: Photonics is the physical science of light based on the concept of “photons” introduced by Albert Einstein in the early 20th century. Einstein introduced this concept in the “particle-wave duality” discussion with Niels Bohr to demonstrate that even light has particle properties (mass and momentum) and wave properties (frequency). That concept beca... Show More

    Abstract: We present statistical results from a very large sample of Seyfert galaxies (217,272 galaxies) obtained from SDSS DR10 (Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 10). From their observed parameters which includes; flux of hydrogen alpha (Hα), luminosity distance and velocity dispersion, we computed other relevant parameters such as; bolometric luminosi... Show More
