Spectral observations of the S-Z effect in clusters of galaxies with OLIMPO


simulation SZ

Simulation of the result of 3 hours of integration with one measurement pixel pointed at the center of a rich cluster

Current ground based observations are photometric and have 2-3 bands at f<250 GHz.
See de Bernardis et al. A&A 538 (2012) for details.


OLIMPO will measure up to 40 clusters per flight in this way.
