ADC_Keywords: Gravitational lensing ; Clusters, galaxy Keywords: dark matter - galaxies: clusters: general - gravitational lensing - large-scale structure of universe Abstract: We present measurements of the excess mass-to-light ratio (M/L) measured around MaxBCG galaxy clusters observed in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This red-sequence cluster sample includes objects from small groups with M200∼5x1012/hM to clusters with M200∼1015/hM. Using cross-correlation weak lensing, we measure the excess mass density profile above the universal mean Δρ(r)=ρ(r)-{bar}ρ for clusters in bins of richness and optical luminosity. We also measure the excess luminosity density Δl(r)=l(r)-{bar}l measured in the z=0.25 i band. For both mass and light, we de-project the profiles to produce three-dimensional mass and light profiles over scales from 25h-1kpc to 22h-1Mpc. From these profiles we calculate the cumulative excess mass ΔM(r) and excess light ΔL(r) as a function of separation from the BCG. Description: In this work we measure the mean M/L's for SDSS groups and clusters drawn from the MaxBCG cluster sample (Koester et al. 2007ApJ...660..221K, 2007, Cat. J/ApJ/660/239). We compare the ensemble mass estimates from the first two papers in this series (Sheldon et al. 2009, Cat. J/ApJ/703/2217; Johnston et al. 2007arXiv0709.1159J) with ensemble measurements of the total light. We measure the mean mass using lensing, and the mean luminosity by correlating the clusters with the surrounding galaxies. File Summary:
