The Gemini/HST cluster project: structural and photometric properties of galaxies in three z = 0.28-0.89 clusters. Chiboucas K., Barr J., Flint K., Jorgensen I., Collobert M., Davies R. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser., 184, 271-287 (2009)> =2009ApJS..184..271C

The goal of this study is to understand cluster galaxy evolution in terms of scaling relations and structural properties of cluster galaxies at redshifts 0.15<z<1.0. To derive parameters such as total magnitude, half-light radius, effective surface brightness, and Sersic n, we fit r1/4 law and Sersic function two-dimensional surface brightness profiles to each of the galaxies in our sample. Using simulated galaxies, we test how the assumed profile affects the derived parameters and how the uncertainties affect our Fundamental Plane results. A catalog of photometry and surface brightness profile parameters is presented for three of the clusters in our sample, RX J0142.0+2131, RX J0152.7-1357, and RX J1226.9+3332 at redshifts 0.28, 0.83, and 0.89, respectively. Description: We have acquired ground-based imaging for the clusters in our sample using GMOS on the Gemini-North 8m telescope. For each of our clusters we have obtained new ACS imaging or used archival HST data to study the galaxy structural parameters with high-resolution data having FWHM=0.1". File Summary:
