We report millimeter-wavelength observations of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (S-Z) effect in two distant galaxy clusters. A relativistically correct analysis of the S-Z data is combined with the results of X-ray observations to determine the radial peculiar velocities (vr) of the clusters. We observed Abell 2163 (z = 0.201) in three millimeter-wavelength bands centered at 2.1, 1.4, and 1.1 mm. We report a significant detection of the thermal component of the S-Z effect seen as both a decrement in the… CONTINUE READING
