Characterising KMOS and scaling relations in the rich cluster MS0451.6-0305

Abstract:

This Thesis contains two parts. Part I details my work on KMOS, a new instrument for the VLT and Part II details my research on scaling relations for the massive galaxy cluster MS0451.6-0305.

Part I: The K-Band Multi-Object Spectrograph (KMOS) is a new near infra-red (NIR) instru- ment to be installed at the Very Large Telescope (VLT). KMOS is capable of spatially resolved kinematics via 24 deployable integral field units (IFUs), each with a 2.8′′ field of view. I describe my contrib...
