2010ApJ...725.1688A Galaxy Clusters in the Swift/BAT Era. II. 10 More Clusters Detected Above 15 keV Ajello, M.; Rebusco, P.; Cappelluti, N.; Reimer, O.; Bohringer, H.; La Parola, V.; Cusumano, G. Abstract. We report on the discovery of 10 additional galaxy clusters detected in the ongoing Swift/Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) all-sky survey. Among the newly BAT-discovered clusters there are Bullet, A85, Norma, and PKS 0745-19. Norma is the only cluster, among those presented here, which is resolved by BAT. For all the clusters, we perform a detailed spectral analysis using XMM-Newton and Swift/BAT data to investigate the presence of a hard (non-thermal) X-ray excess. We find that in most cases the clusters' emission in the 0.3-200 keV band can be explained by a multi-temperature thermal model confirming our previous results. For two clusters (Bullet and A3667), we find evidence for the presence of a hard X-ray excess. In the case of the Bullet cluster, our analysis confirms the presence of a non-thermal, power-law-like, component with a 20-100 keV flux of 3.4 x 10^-12^ erg cm^-2^ s^-1^ as detected in previous studies. For A3667, the excess emission can be successfully modeled as a hot component (kT ~ 13 keV). We thus conclude that the hard X-ray emission from galaxy clusters (except the Bullet) has most likely a thermal origin. Key words: acceleration of particles, galaxies: clusters: general, magnetic fields, radiation mechanisms: non-thermal, X-rays: general
