Shock Fronts, Electron-Ion Equilibration and Intracluster Medium Transport Processes in the Merging Cluster Abell 2146
We present a new 400-ks Chandra X-ray observation of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 2146. This deep observation reveals detailed structure associated with the major merger event including theMach numberM =2.3±0.2 bowshock ...
The Distribution of Dark and Luminous Matter in the Unique Galaxy Cluster Merger Abell 2146
Abell 2146 (z = 0.232) consists of two galaxy clusters undergoing a major merger. The system was discovered in previous work, where two large shock fronts were detected using the Chandra X-ray Observatory, consistent with ...
