2012ApJ...753...47D A Chandra-VLA Investigation of the X-Ray Cavity System and Radio Mini-Halo in the Galaxy Cluster RBS 797 Doria, Alberto; Gitti, Myriam; Ettori, Stefano; Brighenti, Fabrizio; Nulsen, Paul E. J.; McNamara, Brian R. Abstract. We present a study of the cavity system in the galaxy cluster RBS 797 based on Chandra and Very Large Array (VLA) data. RBS 797 (z = 0.35) is one of the most distant galaxy clusters in which two pronounced X-ray cavities have been discovered. The Chandra data confirm the presence of a cool core and indicate a higher metallicity along the cavity directions. This is likely due to the active galactic nucleus outburst, which lifts cool metal-rich gas from the center along the cavities, as seen in other systems. We find indications that the cavities are hotter than the surrounding gas. Moreover, the new Chandra images show bright rims contrasting with the deep, X-ray deficient cavities. The likely cause is that the expanding 1.4 GHz radio lobes have displaced the gas, compressing it into a shell that appears as bright cool arms. Finally, we show that the large-scale radio emission detected with our VLA observations may be classified as a radio mini-halo, powered by the cooling flow, as it nicely follows the trend P_radio_ versus P_CF_ predicted by the reacceleration model. Key words: galaxies: active, galaxies: clusters: individual: RBS 797, galaxies: clusters: intracluster medium, galaxies: jets, radio continuum: galaxies, X-rays: galaxies: clusters
