Abstract

The IR properties of OH megamasers are analyzed, emphasizing the differences between the OH-emitting and OH-absorbing sources. A quadratic L(OH)-L(IR) relationship rather than a linear one is found for the observed megamasers. Such a relationship can be easily understood in terms of a low-gain amplification model.
