NED Abstract

Copyright by Astronomical Society of Japan. 2011PASJ...63S.979S Suzaku Observations of Metal Distributions in the Intracluster Medium of the Centaurus Cluster Sakuma, Eri; Ota, Naomi; Sato, Kosuke; Sato, Takuya; Matsushita, Kyoko Abstract. We report the first observations of metal distributions in the intracluster medium of the Centaurus cluster up to ~0.17r_180_ with Suzaku. Radial profiles of the O, Mg, Si, S, Ar, Ca, and Fe were determined at the outer region of the cluster, and their variations appear to be similar to each other. Within the cool core region (r < 0.045r_180_), all of the metal distributions sharply increased toward the center. In the central region (r < 0.015r_180_), the abundances of Si, S, Ar, Ca, and Fe were 1.5-1.8 solar, while those of O and Mg were approximately 1 solar. The derived abundance ratios of O and Mg to Fe were slightly lower than those of a set of other clusters. In contrast, the calculated mass-to-light ratios (MLRs) for O, Mg, and Fe were larger than those of the other clusters. For the outer region of the cool core (r < 0.07r_180_), all of the abundances were almost constant at 0.5 solar. The derived MLRs were comparable to those of the other clusters. This suggests that the cD galaxy of the Centaurus cluster efficiently supplies more Fe than the other clusters.
