[48.07] STIS UV Observations of the Seyfert 1 Galaxy Mrk~766

M.E. Kaiser (JHU), C.S. Reynolds (U. Maryland), J. Wilms (IAAT)

We present ultraviolet spectra of the z=0.0129 Narrow Line Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk\,766. For wavelengths extending from ~1150-3100\,Å~we have obtained low spectral resolution, ~1-2 Å, observations with {\em HST}/STIS. Our STIS spectrum of Mrk\,766 exhibits emission from Lyman\,\alpha, NV\,\lambda1240, CIV\lambda1549, CIII]\lambda1909, and MgII\,\lambda2800. We will present results for fits to an intrinsic absorber and discuss our results in the context of the standard warm absorber model and an alternative model presented by Branduardi-Raymont et al. (2001) for the {\em XMM-Newton} X-ray observations along this line of sight.

Support for these observations was provided by contract NAS5-30403.
