Product Name
Predicted Sunyaev-Zeldovich Power Spectra
Mission
WMAP

Description

The angular power spectrum due to the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect as adapted from Battaglia et al., 2012 are supplied for three frequencies: 61GHz (corresponding to WMAP), 148GHz (corresponding to ACT) and 150GHz (corresponding to SPT).

The spectra are supplied in three ASCII text files with two columns each. The first column is the multipole moment, l. The second is the spectrum in μK2.

The spectra were computed with the following parameter assumptions:

Ωm=0.258
Ωl=0.742
Ωb=0.0441
h =0.722
ns =0.972
σ8=0.8005

They are supplied in the form: l (l + 1) ClTT / 2 π
