The authors have been observing a range of galaxy type over the IR through millimetre region to determine the contribution of thermal emission from heated dust. It is now clear that the 'Starburst' phenomenon is widespread and has a range of luminosity. By studying the continuum spectrum of the radio-loud Seyfert galaxy NGC 1275 over many years, the authors have shown that it possesses a thermal component of luminosity comparable to the synchrotron luminosity. They interpret this thermal component as emission from dust heated by stars forming from material in an X-ray cooling accretion flow.
