A → radio-loud quasar in which the central source is enhanced by → relativistic beaming and characterized by a → flat → spectrum. It has been conjectured that this phenomenon is an → orientation effect. If a radio-loud quasar is seen along its → jet, it will appear as a core-dominated source. See also → lobe-dominated quasar.
