Optical and infrared investigation towards the z=3.8 quasar pair PC1643+4631AandB

Abstract:

In a companion paper (Paper I: Jones et al. 1996) we report the discovery of a cosmic microwave background decrement, indicative of a distant cluster with mass ~10^{15} solar masses, towards the quasar pair PC1643+4631AandB (z=3.79,3.83, separation 198''). To search for the cluster responsible, we have obtained R-, J- and K-band images of the field and have also carried out optical spectroscopy of selected objects in it. No such cluster is evident in these images. Assuming the cluster causing...
