We present detections of the Sunyaev‐Zeldovich Effect (SZE) at 150GHz and 275GHz for the X‐ray luminous z=0.299 cluster 1E0657‐67. These observations were obtained as part of an X‐ray, weak lensing, and SZE survey of nearby X‐ray bright clusters. The SZE maps were made with the ACBAR (150, 210, 275 GHz) bolometer array installed at the Viper telescope located at the South Pole. We also present preliminary results from a blind SZE cluster survey.

SUNYAEV–ZEL'DOVICH EFFECT OBSERVATIONS OF THE BULLET CLUSTER (1E 0657−56) WITH APEX-SZ

We present observations of the Sunyaev–Zel'dovich effect (SZE) in the Bullet cluster (1E 0657−56) using the APEX-SZ instrument at 150 GHz with a resolution of 1′. The main results are maps of the SZE

THE ATACAMA COSMOLOGY TELESCOPE: PHYSICAL PROPERTIES AND PURITY OF A GALAXY CLUSTER SAMPLE SELECTED VIA THE SUNYAEV–ZEL'DOVICH EFFECT

We present optical and X-ray properties for the first confirmed galaxy cluster sample selected by the Sunyaev–Zel'dovich effect (SZE) from 148 GHz maps over 455 deg2 of sky made with the Atacama

The Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT): Beam Profiles and First SZ Cluster Maps

The Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) is currently observing the cosmic microwave background with arcminute resolution at 148 GHz, 218 GHz, and 277 GHz. In this paper, we present ACT's first results.

Studying the formation and evolution of massive galaxies in (proto)clusters using millimetre observations

In this thesis we study the impact that the population of high-z dust-obscured galaxies with strong sub-millimeter and millimeter emission has on the observations and measurements of the Sunyaev

Polarization of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect: relativistic imprint of thermal and non-thermal plasma

Inverse Compton (IC) scattering of the anisotropic CMB fluctuations off cosmic electron plasmas generates a polarization of the associated Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect. The polarized SZ effect has

Empirical Test for Relativistic Kinetic Theories Based on the Sunyaev–Zel’dovich Effect

We propose a new method to determine the electron velocity (EV) distribution function in the intracluster gas (ICG) in clusters of galaxies based on the frequency dependence of the Sunyaev–Zel’dovich

A high resolution measurement of temperature anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background radiation with the complete ACBAR data set

The Arcminute Cosmology Bolometer Array Receiver (ACBAR) is a 16-element spiderweb bolometer array operating at 150 GHz. Mounted on the 2.1m Viper telescope, ACBAR has dedicated four years to cosmic
