Title 70um photometry to constrain unusually warm dust in cluster galaxies

Author European Space Agency
Description Complete 6 band (70-500um) observations of spectroscopically-confirmed cluster members in the Bullet Cluster have revealed a galaxy population with unexpectedly warm dust (T>40K) for sub-LIRG sources. No field sources of similar luminosity, at any redshift, have comparable dust temperatures, indicating that such warm dust may at least be preferentially located in dense environments. There are currently two problems testing this hypothesis more rigorously: (1) constraining the temperature of warm dust at zvirgul0.3, requires 70um data, as the peak moves blue-ward of the range adequately constrained by 100 and 160um alone; (2) 70um observations of massive clusters are rare, as Spitzer/MIPS was only sensitive enough to probe the nearest poor cluster environments, and Herschel programs have tended to opt for only the 100um filter configuration. Indeed, the Bullet Cluster remains one of the only massive clusters with deep 6-band Herschel photometry.

Here we propose deep 70um PACS observations of four clusters from the Herschel Lensing Survey (HLS): A68, A2744, AS1063, A851 (26.1 hours in total). This sample has the advantage of existing deep 5-band Herschel data, as well 5-band Spitzer IRAC/MIPS coverage and a wealth of optical ancillary data, including 1000s of spectroscopic redshifts. The systems cover a range of cluster morphologies (multi-component mergers to relaxed systems). The observations will allow us to: (1) constrain the characteristic dust temperature of cluster galaxies with unusually warm dust; (2) search for similarly warm dust in foreground field galaxies to assess whether the phenomenon is a product of environment; (3) better constrain the FIR luminosity for all Herschel sources, using 70um to sample the mid-IR gap between 24 and 100um, and the deeper 160um data to increase the number of SPIRE sources detected by PACS; (4) improve Herschel-based photometric redshifts for high-z lensed sources.

Mission Description Herschel was launched on 14 May 2009! It is the fourth 'cornerstone' mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it is the largest space telescope ever launched. It is performing photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-671 µm range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and groundbased facilities.
