Lens Models of CLASH-VLT Clusters


In this page, we collect published strong lensing models and redshift catalogs for a number of CLASH clusters, part of the CLASH-VLT ESO Large Programme, significantly enhanced with archival VLT/MUSE data. HST data are part of the CLASH or Hubble Frontier Fields (HFF) programs. Lens models information is provided in HFF format. References where lens models and redshift catalogs were published and discussed are provided below. Please quote the papers below when using these data.

Nov 2020: A new lens model for MACS J0416 based on the MUSE Deep Lensed Field (MDLF) (Vanzella et al 2020) has been published in Bergamini et al. 2020. Follow the link in the MACS0416 cluster session below for lens model information.

Dec 2019: Enhanced lens models for MACS J1206, MACS J0416 and AS1063, which include prior information from measured cluster galaxy kinematics, have been published in Bergamini et al. 2019. Follow the link in the individual cluster sessions below for lens model information.

Sep 2019: New lens models for CLASH-VLT clusters have been published in Caminha et al. 2019 for the following clusters:
 RXJ2129, MACS1931, MACS0329, MACS2129, MACS1115, MACS0429, RXJ1347 and MACS1311
