Abstract: We measured infrared nuclear luminosities of 100 3CR radio galaxies with z<0.3 from HST NICMOS 2 observations. We modeled and subtracted the infrared galaxy light to isolate and to estimate the nuclear emission. We separated the objects into FR I and FR II and into LEG (low-excitation galaxies), HEG (high-excitation galaxies) and BLO (broad-lined objects) with optical spectra. We performed a multi-wavelength analysis of the nuclei of the sample in order to understand the origin of the near infrared emission for each class of AGN.
