Abstract (from CDS):
We have used the Shanghai Tianma Radio Telescope to search for three OH transitions at 4.7 GHz toward 155 northern star formation regions. We detect 4.7 GHz OH masers in 18 star formation regions, 8 of which are reported here for the first time. From these 18 sources, we detect 6 4660 MHz masers, 13 4765 MHz masers, and no 4750 MHz masers. A further 1 source (Sgr B2N) has been re-detected with broad quasi-thermal emission in all three OH lines. W49SW was re-detected with broad quasi-thermal emission at both 4660 and 4750 MHz. One source (W31, G010.626-0.387) was re-detected with quasi-thermal emission at both 4750 and 4765 MHz. One source (G005.885-0.392) was first detected with quasi-thermal emission at 4660 MHz. We have investigated the associations between the detected 4.7 GHz OH masers with ground-state OH masers near 1.7 GHz, 6.7 GHz methanol masers and 22 GHz water masers reported in the literature. We find that the presence of 1665 MHz OH masers is a better indicator of the presence of 4.7 GHz OH masers than 1720 MHz OH masers. The majority of the 4.7 GHz OH masers are associated with 6.7 GHz methanol and/or 22 GHz water masers. We have compared the characteristics of our detections with those reported previously in the literature and found that only five sources are fairly stable.
