Description

From Huang et al. (2019) and this SPT site:

We present a catalog of galaxy cluster candidates detected in 100 square degrees surveyed with the SPTpol receiver on the South Pole Telescope. The catalog contains 89 candidates detected with a signal-to-noise ratio greater than 4.6. The candidates are selected using the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect at 95 and 150 GHz.

For each cluster candidate we provide the position, the highest detection significance in filtered SPT maps (and the core radii corresponding to the detection), redshift information and-for each confirmed cluster-a mass estimate. Masses are determined using the best-fit ξ-mass scaling relation for a flat LCDM cosmology with Ω = 0.3, h=0.7 and σ = 0.8.
