THE LUMINOSITY PROFILE AND STRUCTURAL PARAMETERS OF THE ANDROMEDA GALAXY
We have constructed an extended composite luminosity profile for the Andromeda galaxy, M31, and have decomposed it into three basic luminous structural components: a bulge, a disk, and a halo. TheExpand

Galaxy clusters discovered via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect in the 2500-square-degree SPT-SZ survey
We present a catalog of galaxy clusters selected via their Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect signature from 2500 deg^2 of South Pole Telescope (SPT) data. This work represents the complete sample ofExpand

A massive, cooling-flow-induced starburst in the core of a luminous cluster of galaxies
In the cores of some clusters of galaxies the hot intracluster plasma is dense enough that it should cool radiatively in the cluster’s lifetime, leading to continuous ‘cooling flows’ of gas sinkingExpand

GALAXY CLUSTERS DISCOVERED VIA THE SUNYAEV-ZEL’DOVICH EFFECT IN THE FIRST 720 SQUARE DEGREES OF THE SOUTH POLE TELESCOPE SURVEY
We present a catalog of galaxy cluster candidates, selected through their Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect signature in the first 720 deg^2 of the South Pole Telescope (SPT) survey. This area wasExpand

  • 10 July 2014
We describe the design of a new polarization sensitive receiver, spt-3g, for the 10-meter South Pole Telescope (spt). The spt-3g receiver will deliver a factor of ~20 improvement in mapping speedExpand

On the Origin of the Extended Hα Filaments in Cooling Flow Clusters
We present a high spatial resolution H? survey of 23 cooling flow clusters using the Maryland Magellan Tunable Filter, covering 1-2 orders of magnitude in cooling rate, dM/dt, temperature, andExpand

THE GROWTH OF COOL CORES AND EVOLUTION OF COOLING PROPERTIES IN A SAMPLE OF 83 GALAXY CLUSTERS AT 0.3 < z < 1.2 SELECTED FROM THE SPT-SZ SURVEY
We present first results on the cooling properties derived from Chandra X-ray observations of 83 high-redshift (0.3 0.75, consistent with earlier reports for clusters at z > 0.5 using similarExpand

ALMA Observations of Gas-rich Galaxies in z ∼ 1.6 Galaxy Clusters: Evidence for Higher Gas Fractions in High-density Environments
We present ALMA CO (2-1) detections in eleven gas-rich cluster galaxies at z~1.6, constituting the largest sample of molecular gas measurements in z>1 clusters to date. The observations span threeExpand

The Evolution of the Intracluster Medium Metallicity in Sunyaev-Zel'dovich-Selected Galaxy Clusters at 0 < z < 1.5
We present the results of an X-ray spectral analysis of 153 galaxy clusters observed with the Chandra, XMM-Newton, and Suzaku space telescopes. These clusters, which span 0 = 0.23 +/- 0.01 Zsun and aExpand

The Remarkable Similarity of Massive Galaxy Clusters from z ~ 0 to z ~ 1.9
We present the results of a Chandra X-ray survey of the 8 most massive galaxy clusters at z>1.2 in the South Pole Telescope 2500 deg^2 survey. We combine this sample with previously-published ChandraExpand
