Intracluster Stars in the Virgo Cluster Core

Aguerri, J Alfonso L; Gerhard, Ortwin; Arnaboldi, Magda; Napolitano, Nicola R; Castro-Rodriguez, N; Freeman, Kenneth


We have investigated the properties of the diffuse light in the Virgo Cluster core region, based on the detection of intracluster planetary nebulae (PNs) in four fields. We eliminate the bias from misclassified faint continuum objects, using improved Monte Carlo simulations, and the contaminations by high-redshift Lyaα galaxies, using the Lyα luminosity function in blank fields. Recent spectroscopic observations confirm that our photometric PN samples are well understood. We find that the...[Show more]
