We explore the relation between diffuse intracluster light (central galaxy included) and the galaxy cluster (baryonic and dark) matter distribution using a sample of 528 clusters at $0.2\leq z \leq 0.35$ found in the Dark Energy Survey (DES) Year 1 data. The surface brightness of the diffuse light shows an increasing dependence on cluster total mass at larger radius, and appears to be self-similar with a universal radial dependence after scaling by cluster radius.We also compare the diffuse… 
Stellar splashback: the edge of the intracluster light
We examine the outskirts of galaxy clusters in the C-EAGLE simulations to quantify the "edges" of the stellar and dark matter distribution. The radius of the steepest slope in the dark matter,
μ⋆ masses: weak-lensing calibration of the Dark Energy Survey Year 1 redMaPPer clusters using stellar masses
We present the weak lensing mass calibration of the stellar mass based $\mu_{\star}$ mass proxy for redMaPPer galaxy clusters in the Dark Energy Survey Year 1. For the first time we are able to
On the Origin and Evolution of the Intra-Cluster Light: A Brief Review of the Most Recent Developments
Not all the light in galaxy groups and clusters comes from stars that are bound to galaxies. A significant fraction of it constitutes the so-called intracluster or diffuse light (ICL), a low surface
The faint light in groups and clusters of galaxies
The diffuse light that spreads through groups and clusters of galaxies is made of free-floating stars not bound to any galaxy. This is known as the intracluster light (ICL) and holds important clues
The Intra-Group Baryons in the LEO I Pair From the VST Early-Type GAlaxy Survey
In this paper we present the deep, wide-field and multi-band imaging of the LEO I pair NGC 3379-NGC 3384, from the VST Early-type GAlaxy Survey (VEGAS). The main goal of this study is to map the
Halo cluster shapes: insights from simulated galaxies and ICL with prospects for weak lensing applications
We present a detailed study of the shapes and alignments of different galaxy cluster components using hydrodynamical simulations. We compute shape parameters from the dark matter (DM) distribution,
VEGAS: A VST Early-type GAlaxy Survey
Context. In this paper, we present ultra-deep images of the compact group of galaxies HCG 86 as part of the VEGAS survey. Aims. Our main goals are to estimate the amount of intra-group light (IGL) as
Discovery of a possible splashback feature in the intracluster light of MACS J1149.5+2223
We present an analysis of the intracluster light (ICL) in the Frontier Field Cluster MACS J1149.5+2223 (z = 0.544), which combines new and archival Hubble WFC3/IR imaging to provide continuous
Quantified diffuse light in compact groups of galaxies
The vast majority of stars in galaxy groups are contained within their constituent galaxies. Some small fraction of stars is expected, however, to follow the global dark matter potential of the
Hubble Frontier Field Clusters and Their Parallel Fields: Photometric and Photometric Redshift Catalogs
We present a multiband analysis of the six Hubble Frontier Field clusters and their parallel fields, producing catalogs with measurements of source photometry and photometric redshifts. We release


The intracluster light as a tracer of the total matter density distribution: a view from simulations
By using deep observations of clusters of galaxies, it has been recently found that the projected stellar mass density closely follows the projected total (dark and baryonic) mass density within
From stellar haloes to intracluster light: the physics of the Intra-Halo Stellar Component in cosmological hydrodynamical simulations
We study the Intra-Halo Stellar Component (IHSC) of Milky Way-mass systems up to galaxy clusters in the Horizon-AGN cosmological hydrodynamical simulation. We identify the IHSC using an improved

We perform a joint analysis of the counts and weak lensing signal of redMaPPer clusters selected from the Dark Energy Survey (DES) Year 1 dataset. Our analysis uses the same shear and source
Noise from undetected sources in Dark Energy Survey images
For ground-based optical imaging with current CCD technology, the Poisson fluctuations in source and sky background photon arrivals dominate the noise budget and are readily estimated. Another
