Two-dimensional kinematics and stellar populations of early-type galaxies: First results from the SAURON survey

Abstract:

We present the SAURON project, which is aimed at studying the morphology, two-dimensional kinematics and stellar populations of a representative sample of elliptical galaxies and spiral bulges.SAURON, a dedicated integral-field spectrograph that is optimized for observations and has high throughput, was built in Lyon and is now operated at the WHT 4.2m telescope. At present, we have ob served approximately two thirds of the seventy-two sample galaxies with SAURON. A comparison with published ...
