Methods. High-resolution adaptive optics images of UM673 taken with the Subaru telescope in the H band were examined. We also analysed the J, H and K-band observational data of UM673 obtained with the 1.3 m telescope at the CTIO observatory.
Results. We present photometry of quasar components A and B of UM673, the lens, and the nearby bright galaxy using H-band observational data obtained with the Subaru telescope. Based on the CTIO observations of UM673, we also present J- and H-band photometry and estimates of the J, H and K-band flux ratios between the two UM673 components in recent epochs. The near-infrared fluxes of the A and B components of UM673 and their published optical fluxes are analysed to measure extinction properties of the lensing galaxy. We estimate the extinction-corrected flux ratio between components A and B to be about 2.14 mag. We discuss lens models for the UM673 system constrained with the positions of the UM673 components, their flux ratio, and the previously measured time delay.
Key words: gravitational lensing: strong / methods: data analysis / quasars: individual: UM673
Based in part on data collected at Subaru Telescope, which is operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.
