  • We examine deep XMM–Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer observations of the X-ray luminous galaxy cluster A1835. For the first time in a galaxy cluster, we place direct limits on turbulent broadening of the emission lines. This is possible because the coolest X-ray emitting gas in the cluster, which is responsible for the lines, occupies a small region within the core. The most conservative determination of the 90 per cent upper limit on line-of-sight, non-thermal, velocity broadening is… CONTINUE READING
