Content

<p>Apart from the presence of an active AGN, very young and massive super star clusters (SSCs) are likely to be found in local starbursts and interacting luminous infrared galaxies. SSCs are responsible of a high star formation rate (SFR) of the host galaxy. From an on-going deep NIR AO imaging survey, we were able to observe some SSCs hidden by the dusty central regions. To better understand the formation and the evolution of massive star clusters we derived the K-band SSC luminosity functions (LFs) of our sample.
