We present a new high-precision parametric strong lensing model of the galaxy cluster MACS J0416.1-2403, at z=0.396, which takes advantage of the MUSE Deep Lensed Field (MDLF, Vanzella et al. 2020b), with 17.1h integration in the North-East region of the cluster, and Hubble Frontier Fields data. We spectroscopically identify 182 multiple images from 48 background sources at 0.9<z<6.2, and 171 cluster member galaxies. Several multiple images are associated to individual clumps in multiply lensed… 
VLT/MUSE Observations of SDSS J1029+2623: Toward a High-precision Strong Lensing Model
We present a strong lensing analysis of the galaxy cluster SDSS J1029+2623 at z = 0.588, one of the few currently known lens clusters with multiple images of a background (z = 2.1992) quasar with a
Constraints on the [C ii] luminosity of a proto-globular cluster at z ∼ 6 obtained with ALMA
We report on ALMA observations of D1, a system at z~6.15 with stellar mass M_* ~ 10^7 M_sun containing globular cluster (GC) precursors, strongly magnified by the galaxy cluster MACS J0416.1-2403.
The Galaxy Starburst/Main-sequence Bimodality over Five Decades in Stellar Mass at z ≈ 3–6.5
We study the relation between stellar mass (M *) and star formation rate (SFR) for star-forming galaxies over approximately five decades in stellar mass ( 5.5≲log10(M*/M⊙)≲10.5 ) at z ≈ 3–6.5. This
Systematic search for lensed X-ray sources in the CLASH fields
We search for unresolved X-ray emission from lensed sources in the FOV of 11 CLASH clusters with Chandra data. We consider the solid angle in the lens plane corresponding to a magnification
The MUSE Deep Lensed Field on the Hubble Frontier Field MACS J0416
Context. A census of faint and tiny star forming complexes at high redshift is key to improving our understanding of reionizing sources, galaxy growth, and the formation of globular clusters. Aims.
Cluster strong lensing with hierarchical inference
Lensing by galaxy clusters is a versatile probe of cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics, but the accuracy of some of its predictions is limited by the simplified models adopted to reduce the
