Sunyaev-Zeldovich Cluster Data

The product tables below include observations from ACT, Planck and SPT, predictions of SZ power spectra and bispectra, and simulations of sky maps and SZ halo properties. Additional useful links may be found at the bottom of the page.

Observed SZ Data Products
Name Description
IAS/IDOC SZ Cluster Database
IAS/IDOC
Provides access to catalogues and complementary information on 2690 clusters of galaxies observed through the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect. A metacatalogue containing Planck, ACT, SPT, Carma, and AMI observations can be queried and the Planck y-map, WISE image, WISE density map and ROSAT map can be visualized for each cluster.
ACTPol SZ Cluster Catalog A catalog of 182 galaxy clusters detected through the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope in a contiguous 987.5 deg2 field.
ACT 2008 SZ Clusters Catalog of 23 galaxy clusters detected by the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect in 455 square degrees of sky surveyed by ACT during 2008 at 148 GHz. The catalog gives the cluster names, positions, redshifts, signal-to-noise, and measured SZ signal. SZ and optical images of each cluster are also included.
An Extension of the Planck Cluster Catalog (Burenin 2017)
A catalog of about 3000 galaxy clusters detected in the Planck all-sky Compton parameter maps and identified using data from the WISE and SDSS surveys.
Planck Release 2 SZ Catalog
ESA, IRSA, HEASARC
The all-sky Planck catalog of Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) sources detected from the 29 month full-mission data.
Planck Release 1 SZ Catalog
ESA, IRSA, HEASARC
The all-sky Planck catalog of Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) sources detected from the first 15.5 months of data.
Planck Early Release SZ Catalog The all-sky Planck catalog of Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) sources detected from the first all sky coverage by Planck, i.e., using observations obtained from 12 August 2009 to 6 June 2010.
SPT 2014 Cluster Catalog The SZ selected catalog of galaxy cluster candidates from the 2500-square-degree SPT-SZ survey.
SPT 2012 Cluster Catalog The SZ selected catalog of galaxy cluster candidates from the first 720 square degrees of the SPT survey.
SPT 2012 Cluster Likelihood Code The requisite instructions and files for adding the SPT_CL likelihood to the October 2012 version of cosmomc.
SPT 2010 Cluster Catalog The first SZ selected catalog of galaxy clusters found in Vanderlinde et al. 2010, and the covariance matrix of the mass estimates.
SPT Binned Bispectrum Measurements These files contain the bispectrum measurements and associated covariance matrices (statistical only) at 95, 150, and 220 GHz from 2008+2009 observations.
   
Predicted SZ Data Products
Name Description
ACT SZ Templates The angular power spectra due to the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect as predicted by four different models (named TBO-1, TBO-2, Battaglia, Shaw) are supplied for the 148 GHZ ACT frequency.
SPT Thermal SZ Bispectrum Templates These files contain the predicted thermal SZ bispectrum for three different levels of cluster cuts (no clusters cut, clusters above M200(rho_crit)=8e14 Msun/h cut, and clusters above M200 (rho_crit)=3e14 Msun/h cut).
WMAP Predicted SZ Power Spectra The angular power spectra due to the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect, as adapted from Battaglia, et al., (2012). Spectra for three frequencies are provided.
   
Simulated SZ Data Products
Name Description
Sky Maps Realistic, full-sky, half-arcminute resolution simulations from Seghal et al. (2009) including maps of infared galaxies and radio galaxies at 6 frequencies from 30 to 350 GHz.
SZ Halo Catalog Halo properties, including SZ characteristics, from the simulations of Seghal et al. (2009) for all the halos with Mfof > 2 x 10^13 Msun/h.
