CIZA J1358.9-4750 is a nearby (z = 0.074) pair of clusters of galaxies located close to the Galactic plane. It consists of two X-Ray extended humps at north-west and south-east separated by 14 arcmin (~ 1.2 Mpc), and an X-Ray bright bridge-like structure in between. With Suzaku, the south-east hump was shown to have a temperature of 5.6 keV and the north-west one 4.6 keV. Neither humps exhibit significant central cool component. The bridge region has a temperature higher than 9 keV at the…

A pre-merger stage galaxy cluster: Abell 3733

The galaxy cluster Abell 3733 (A3733) is a very suitable candidate in addressing dynamical processes throughout galaxy cluster mergers. This study shows structural analysis results of A3733 (z =

ATCA 16 cm Observation of CIZA J1358.9-4750: Implication of Merger Stage and Constraint on Non-Thermal Properties

We report the Australia Telescope Compact Array 16 cm observation of CIZA J1358.9-4750. Recent X-ray studies imply that this galaxy cluster is composed of merging, binary clusters. Using the EW367

Suzaku and XMM-Newton observations of the newly discovered early-stage cluster merger of 1E2216.0-0401 and 1E2215.7-0404

We present the results of Suzaku and XMM-Newton X-ray observations of the cluster pair 1E2216.0-0401 and 1E2215.7-0404. We discover an X-ray bridge between the clusters. Suzaku and XMM-Newton

Properties of the cosmological filament between two clusters: A possible detection of a large-scale accretion shock by $Suzaku$

We report on the results of a $Suzaku$ observation of the plasma in the filament located between the two massive clusters of galaxies Abell 399 and Abell 401. Abell 399 ($z$=0.0724) and Abell 401

Dynamical analysis of the cluster pair: A3407 + A3408

We carried out a dynamical study of the galaxy cluster pair A3407 \& A3408 based on a spectroscopic survey obtained with the 4 meter Blanco telescope at the CTIO, plus 6dF data, and ROSAT

Observations of a pre-merger shock in colliding clusters of galaxies

Clusters of galaxies are the largest known gravitationally bound structures in the Universe. When clusters collide, they create merger shocks on cosmological scales, which transform most of the

LOFAR discovery of a double radio halo system in Abell 1758 and radio/X-ray study of the cluster pair

Radio halos and radio relics are diffuse synchrotron sources that extend over Mpc-scales and are found in a number of merger galaxy clusters. They are believed to form as a consequence of the energy

COS Observations of the Cosmic Web: A Search for the Cooler Components of a Hot, X-Ray Identified Filament

In the local universe, a large fraction of the baryon content is believed to exist as diffuse gas in filaments. While this gas is directly observable in X-ray emission around clusters of galaxies, it

The FORCE mission: science aim and instrument parameter for broadband x-ray imaging spectroscopy with good angular resolution

FORCE is a 1.2 tonnes small mission dedicated for wide-band fine-imaging x-ray observation. It covers from 1 to 80 keV with a good angular resolution of 15′′ half-power-diameter. It is proposed to be



Merger Shocks in Abell 3667 and the Cygnus~A Cluster

We present new XMM-Newton observations of the northwest (NW) radio relic region in the cluster Abell 3667. We detect a jump in the X-ray surface brightness and X-ray temperature at the sharp outer

Hard X-Ray Properties of the Merging Cluster Abell 3667 as Observed with Suzaku

Abstract : Wide-band Suzaku data on the merging cluster Abell 3667 were examined for hard X-ray emission in excess to the known thermal component. Suzaku detected X-ray signals in a wide energy band

Detection of hot gas in the filament connecting the clusters of galaxies Abell 222 and Abell 223

Context. About half of the baryons in the local Universe are invisible and – according to simulations – their dominant fraction resides in filaments connecting clusters of galaxies in the form of low

A Cluster Merger and the Origin of the Extended Radio Emission in Abell 3667

We present a numerical model for the extended steep-spectrum radio sources and the elongated X-ray structure in A3667 based on new three-dimensional MHD/N-body simulations. The X-ray and optical


A3667 is the archetype of a merging cluster with radio relics. The northwest (NW) radio relic is the brightest cluster relic or halo known and is believed to be due to a strong merger shock. We have

A Textbook Example of a Bow Shock in the Merging Galaxy Cluster 1E 0657–56

The Chandra image of the merging, hot galaxy cluster 1E 0657-56 reveals a bow shock propagating in front of a bullet-like gas cloud just exiting the disrupted cluster core. This is the first clear
