Observations of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect using the Cosmic Background Imager 2

Abstract:

This thesis describes the analysis of pointed thermal Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect data from observations using the Cosmic Background Imager 2 (CBI2). CBI2 is an upgrade to the original Cosmic Background Imager, with antennas that have twice the effective collecting area, and hence provide greater sensitivity on longer baselines. Observations of the thermal SZ effect constrain the line-of-sight integrated gas pressure within clusters of galaxies and, when combined with X-ray data, provide a...
