Kinetic Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect from galaxy cluster rotation.


Abstract (from CDS):

We show how the temperature and the polarization of the cosmic microwave background are affected by bulk rotation of clusters of galaxies owing to the kinetic Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect. The main effects of rotation are (i) a shift of the position of the peak of the temperature fluctuation relative to the center of the cluster by a few percent of the core radius and (ii) a tilt of the direction of the plane of linear polarization by several degrees.
