Intergalactic stars in z ∼ 0.25 galaxy clusters: systematic properties from stacking of Sloan Digital Sky Survey imaging data

Abstract

We analyse the spatial distribution and colour of the intracluster light (ICL) in 683 clusters of galaxies between z = 0.2 and 0.3, selected from ∼ 1500 deg of the first data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-DR1). Surface photometry in the g, r and i bands is conducted on stacked images of the clusters, after rescaling them to the same metric… (More)
