The $Planck$ satellite has recently completed an all-sky galaxy cluster survey exploiting the thermal Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect to locate some of the most massive systems observable. With a median redshift of $\left =0.22$, the clusters found by $Planck$ at $z>0.3$ are proving to be exceptionally massive and/or disturbed systems. One notable $Planck$ discovery at $z=0.645$, PLCK G147.3-16.6, has a dual core and hosts a radio halo, indicating it is likely in the process of merging. We…

A High-resolution SZ View of the Warm-Hot Universe
The Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect was first predicted nearly five decades ago, but has only recently become a mature tool for performing high resolution studies of the warm and hot ionized gas in and
High angular resolution Sunyaev-Zel’dovich observations of MACS J1423.8+2404 with NIKA: Multiwavelength analysis
NIKA, the prototype of the NIKA2 camera, is an instrument operating at the IRAM 30m telescope that can observe the sky simultaneously at 150 and 260GHz. One of the main goals of NIKA is to measure
In the wake of dark giants: new signatures of dark matter self-interactions in equal-mass mergers of galaxy clusters
Author(s): Kim, SY; Peter, AHG; Wittman, D | Abstract: © 2017 The Authors. Merging galaxy clusters have been touted as one of the best probes for constraining selfinteracting darkmatter, but


The discovery of a radio halo in PLCK G147.3-16.6 at Z = 0.65
Recent X-ray and Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) observations have dramatically increased the number of known distant galaxy clusters. In some merging, low-redshift (z < 0.4) clusters, centrally located,
Exploring Cluster Physics with High-Resolution Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Effect Images and X-Ray Data
Foreseeing the era of high spatial resolution measurements of the Sunyaev–Zel’dovich effect (SZE) in clusters of galaxies, we present a prototype analysis of this sort combined with Chandra X-ray
Pressure distribution of the high-redshift cluster of galaxies CL J1226.9+3332 with NIKA ?
The thermal Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (tSZ) e ect is expected to provide a low scatter mass proxy for galaxy clusters since it is directly proportional to the cluster thermal energy. The tSZ observations
The Atacama Cosmology Telescope: Sunyaev-Zel'dovich selected galaxy clusters at 148 GHz from three seasons of data
We present a catalog of 68 galaxy clusters, of which 19 are new discoveries, detected via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (SZ) at 148 GHz in the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) survey on the
Galaxy clusters discovered via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect in the 2500-square-degree SPT-SZ survey
We present a catalog of galaxy clusters selected via their Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect signature from 2500 deg^2 of South Pole Telescope (SPT) data. This work represents the complete sample of
Planck intermediate results - X. Physics of the hot gas in the Coma cluster
We present an analysis of Planck satellite data on the Coma cluster observed via the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect. Thanks to its great sensitivity, Planck is able, for the first time, to detect SZ
