Radio Halo and Relic Candidates from the Westerbork Northern Sky Survey

We have undertaken a systematic search for diffuse radio halos and relics in all of the Abell clusters that are visible in the Westerbork Northern Sky Survey. In this survey we found 18 candidates,

Halo and relic sources in clusters of galaxies

Low-Frequency VLA Observations of Abell 754: Evidence for a Cluster Radio Halo and Possible Radio Relics

We present 74 and 330 MHz VLA observations of Abell 754. Diffuse, halo-like emission is detected from the center of the cluster at both frequencies. At 330 MHz, the resolution of 90'' distinguishes

Radio halos in nearby (z < 0.4) clusters of galaxies

Context. The intra-cluster medium is characterized by thermal emission, and by the presence of large scale magnetic fields. In some clusters of galaxies, a diffuse non-thermal emission is also

Diffuse radio sources in the cluster of galaxies Abell 548b

We report extensive Very Large Array (VLA) and Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) observations of the two diffuse radio sources in the cluster of galaxies Abell 548b, which confirm their

VLA Radio Observations of the HST Frontier Fields Cluster Abell 2744: The Discovery of New Radio Relics

Cluster mergers leave distinct signatures in the intracluster medium (ICM) in the form of shocks and diffuse cluster radio sources that provide evidence for the acceleration of relativistic

Radio observations of Planck clusters

Recently, a number of new galaxy clusters have been detected by the ESA-Planck satellite, the South Pole Telescope and the Atacama Cosmology Telescope using the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect. Several of

On the absence of radio haloes in clusters with double relics

© 2018 The Author(s). Pairs of radio relics are believed to form during cluster mergers, and are best observed when the merger occurs in the plane of the sky. Mergers can also produce radio haloes,

Radio haloes in Sunyaev–Zel'dovich-selected clusters of galaxies: the making of a halo?

Radio halos are synchrotron radio sources detected in some massive galaxy clusters. Their Mpc-size indicates that (re)acceleration processes are taking place in the host cluster. X-ray catalogues of

The discovery of two distant, massive clusters of galaxies in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey

We discuss the radio, optical, and X-ray properties of two newly discovered, very X-ray luminous, distant clusters of galaxies. Both systems were noted as cluster candidates in a cross-correlation of
