BUFFALO/Flashlights: Constraints on the abundance of lensed supergiant stars in the Spock galaxy at redshift 1 (2024)
Journal Article
Diego, J. M., Li, S. K., Meena, A. K., Niemiec, A., Acebron, A., Jauzac, M., …Pascale, M. (2024). BUFFALO/Flashlights: Constraints on the abundance of lensed supergiant stars in the Spock galaxy at redshift 1. Astronomy & Astrophysics, 681, Article A124. https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/202346761

In this work, we present a constraint on the abundance of supergiant (SG) stars at redshift z ≈ 1, based on recent observations of a strongly lensed arc at this redshift. First we derived a free-form model of MACS J0416.1-2403 using data from the Be...

RXJ0437+00: constraining dark matter with exotic gravitational lenses (2023)
Journal Article
Lagattuta, D. J., Richard, J., Ebeling, H., Basto, Q., Cerny, C., Edge, A., …Massey, R. (2023). RXJ0437+00: constraining dark matter with exotic gravitational lenses. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 522(1), 1091-1107. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stad803

We present the first strong-gravitational-lensing analysis of the galaxy cluster RX J0437.1+0043 (RXJ0437; z = 0.285). Newly obtained, deep MUSE observations, Keck/MOSFIRE near-infrared spectroscopy, and Hubble Space Telescope SNAPshot imaging reveal...

Pilot-WINGS: An extended MUSE view of the structure of Abell 370 (2022)
Journal Article
Lagattuta, D. J., Richard, J., Bauer, F. E., Cerny, C., Claeyssens, A., Guaita, L., …Weaver, J. R. (2022). Pilot-WINGS: An extended MUSE view of the structure of Abell 370. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 514(1), 497-517. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stac418

We investigate the strong-lensing cluster Abell 370 (A370) using a wide Integral Field Unit (IFU) spectroscopic mosaic from the Multi-Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE). IFU spectroscopy provides significant insight into the structure and mass conten... Read More about Pilot-WINGS: An extended MUSE view of the structure of Abell 370.
