We are currently constructing an SQL database that contains spectroscopic redshift catalogs and Subaru broad-band imaging catalogs of our radio relic merger sample. It is our intention to publicly release this catalog once complete, however it is not our highest priority (we are focusing more on publishing our results). In the mean time please contact us if you are interested in any of our data.
To date we have obtained approximately 5000 spectra over 12 fields using Keck DEIMOS with the 1200 line grating. For most systems the wavelength range brackets H-beta and H-alpha. The 12 fields currently observed are:
Approximately 98% of the data is currently reduced, thanks in large part to the effort of Nathan Golovich.
Our collaboration members have previously obtained INT and WHT multi-band imaging of a number of radio relic merging clusters and we are currently undertaking a Subaru SuprimeCam multi-band imaging campaign of our radio relic sample. The objective of the Subaru campaign is to obtain high quality deep imaging to conduct gravitational lensing studies of the systems. As of Feb. 23, 2014 fifteen of the clusters in our radio relic sample have been observed with Subaru. With our February 2014 run we will target 15 radio relic systems, 11 of which don't have existing Subaru imaging.
