J/ApJ/810/138         ETGs sample for the Coma cluster        (Riguccini+, 2015)

Mid-IR enhanced galaxies in the Coma & Virgo clusters: lenticulars with a high star formation rate. Riguccini L., Temi P., Amblard A., Fanelli M., Brighenti F. <Astrophys. J., 810, 138 (2015)> =2015ApJ...810..138R (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

The L24/LK distribution of ETGs in both Virgo and Coma clusters shows that some S0s have a much larger L24/LK ratio (0.5 to ∼2 dex) than the bulk of the ETG population. This could be interpreted as an enhanced star formation rate in these lenticulars. We compare the optical colors of galaxies in these two clusters and investigate the nature of these sources with a large L24/LK ratio by looking at their spatial distribution within the cluster, analyzing their optical spectra, and looking at their optical colors compared to late-types. We obtain 10 Coma and 3 Virgo early-type sources with larger L24/LK ratios than the bulk of their population. We call these sources mid-infrared enhanced galaxies (MIEGs). In Coma, they are mostly located in the southwest part of the cluster where a substructure is falling onto the main cluster. MIEGs present a lower g-r color than the rest of the ETG sample because of a blue continuum. We interpret the excess L24/LK ratio as evidence for enhanced star formation induced as a consequence of their infall into the main cluster. Description: For the Coma Cluster, we utilize the work of Mahajan et al. (2010, J/MNRAS/404/1745) to build our ETG sample. Mahajan et al. (2010, J/MNRAS/404/1745) used a combination of MIPS 24 µm observations and SDSS photometry and spectra to investigate the star formation history of galaxies in the Coma supercluster. All of their galaxies from the SDSS data in the Coma supercluster region are brighter than r∼17.77, the completeness limit of the SDSS spectroscopic galaxy catalog. Their 24 µm fluxes are obtained from archival data covering 2x2 deg2 for Coma Cluster. Our final sample of 124 sources is composed of 49 ellipticals and 75 lenticulars.
