ACT Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Clusters
Total number of clusters = 23
The measured SZ signal is given as a central temperature decrement, both before and after deconvolving with the ACT beam, and as a central Compton y parameter (δ T0, δ T′0 and δ y0 respectively). A corresponding estimate of the core radius is also given (θcore). For the high-significance clusters, a measured SZ temperature decrement within 0.5' is given as well (yTCMB). Redshifts in the table are either photometric (if only 2 digits are presented after the decimal) or spectroscopic (3 digits).
Details on cluster detection and central Compton y values for the full sample can be found in Marriage et al. (2010). Optical follow-up observations are described in Menanteau et al. (2010). Details on cluster detection, fixed-aperture integrated Compton y values, and cosmological interpretation for the high-significance sample are presented in Sehgal et al. (2010).
