A novel 3D technique to study the kinematics of lensed galaxies

Rizzo, Francesca; Vegetti, Simona; Fraternali, Filippo; DI TEODORO, ENRICO MARIA


We present a 3D Bayesian method to model the kinematics of strongly lensed galaxies from spatially resolved emission-line observations. This technique enables us to simultaneously recover the lens–mass distribution and the source kinematics directly from the 3D data cube. We have tested this new method with simulated OSIRIS observations for nine star-forming lensed galaxies with different kinematic properties. The simulated rotation curves span a range of shapes that are prototypes of different...[Show more]
