We perform a detailed spatially resolved, spectroscopic, analysis of the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies using a deep Chandra X-ray observation and XMM-Newton data. The Centaurus cluster core has particularly high metallicity, up to twice the solar values, and we measure the abundances of Fe, O, Ne, Mg, Si, S, Ar, Ca and Ni. We map the distribution of these elements in many spatial regions, and create radial profiles to the east and west of the centre. The ratios of the most robustly… 
Core‐collapse supernova enrichment in the core of the Virgo cluster
Using a deep (574 ks) Chandra observation of M87, the dominant galaxy of the nearby Virgo cluster, we present the best measurements to date of the radial distribution of metals in the central
Searching for the missing iron mass in the core of the Centaurus cluster
We re-analyse a combined 198 ks Chandra observation of NGC4696, the brightest galaxy of the Centaurus cluster. We extract temperature and metallicity profiles from the data, and we confirm the
Metallicity map of the galaxy cluster A3667
We use XMM-Newtondata of the merging cluster Abell 3667 to analyze its metallicity distribution. A detailed abundance map of the central 1.1 × 1.1 Mpc region indicates that metals are inhomogeneously
Constraints on the chemical enrichment history of the Perseus Cluster of galaxies from high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy
High-resolution spectroscopy of the core of the Perseus Cluster of galaxies, using the Hitomi satellite above 2 keV and the XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer at lower energies, provides
Possible depletion of metals into dust grains in the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies
We present azimuthally averaged metal abundance profiles from a full, comprehensive, and conservative re-analysis of the deep (∼800 ks total net exposure) Chandra/ACIS-S observation of the Centaurus
Fields and filaments in the core of the Centaurus cluster
We present high-resolution images of the Faraday rotation measure (RM) structure of the radio galaxy PKS 1246-410 at the centre of the Centaurus cluster. Comparison with Ha-line and soft X-ray
Metallicity of the Fossil Group NGC 1550 Observed with Suzaku
We studied the temperature and metal abundance distributions of the intra-cluster medium (ICM) in a group of galaxies, NGC 1550, observed with Suzaku. NGC 1550 is classified as a fossil group, which
Cool X-ray emitting gas in the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies
We use a deep XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer observation to examine the X-ray emission from the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies. We clearly detect Fe XVII emission at four
A very deep Chandra view of metals, sloshing and feedback in the Centaurus cluster of galaxies
We examine deep Chandra X-ray observations of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies, Abell 3526. Applying a gradient magnitude filter reveals a wealth of structure, from filamentary soft emission on 100
Metal abundances in the cool cores of galaxy clusters
We use XMM-Newton data to carry out a detailed study of the Si, Fe and Ni abundances in the cool cores of a representative sample of 26 local clusters. We performed a careful evaluation of the
