Planck 2013 results. XXXII. The updated Planck catalogue of Sunyaev-Zeldovich sources


We update the all-sky Planck catalogue of 1227 clusters and cluster candidates (PSZ1) published in March 2013, derived from detections of the Sunyaev–Zeldovich (SZ) effect using the first 15.5 months of Planck satellite observations. As an addendum, we deliver an updated version of the PSZ1 catalogue, reporting the further confirmation of 86 Planck-discovered clusters. In total, the PSZ1 now contains 947 confirmed clusters, of which 214 were confirmed as newly discovered clusters through follow-up observations undertaken by the Planck Collaboration. The updated PSZ1 contains redshifts for 913 systems, of which 736 (~ 80.6%) are spectroscopic, and associated mass estimates derived from the Y_z mass proxy. We also provide a new SZ quality flag for the remaining 280 candidates. This flag was derived from a novel artificial neural-network classification of the SZ signal. Based on this assessment, the purity of the updated PSZ1 catalogue is estimated to be 94%. In this release, we provide the full updated catalogue and an additional readme file with further information on the Planck SZ detections.

The authors thank N. Schartel, ESA XMM-Newton project scientist, for granting the DDT used for confirmation of SZ Planck candidates. The authors thank TUBITAK, IKI, KFU and AST for support in using RTT150; in particular we thank KFU and IKI for providing significant amounts of their observing time at RTT150. We also acknowledge the BTA 6 m telescope TAC for support of the optical follow-up project. The authors acknowledge the use of the INT and WHT telescopes operated on the island of La Palma by the Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes at the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos of the IAC; the NOT, operated on La Palma jointly by Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, at the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos; the TNG, operated on La Palma by the Fundacion Galileo Galilei of the INAF at the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos; the GTC telescope, operated on La Palma by the IAC at the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos; and the IAC80 telescope operated on the island of Tenerife by the IAC at the Spanish Observatorio del Teide. Part of this research has been carried out with telescope time awarded by the CCI International Time Programme. The authors thank the TAC of the MPG/ESO-2.2m telescope for support of optical follow-up with WFI under Max Planck time. Observations were also conducted with ESO NTT at the La Silla Paranal Observatory. This research has made use of SDSS-III data. Funding for SDSS-III (http://www.sdss3.org/) has been provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Participating Institutions, the National Science Foundation, and DoE. SDSS-III is managed by the Astrophysical Research Consortium for the Participating Institutions of the SDSS-III Collaboration. This research has made use of the following databases: the NED and IRSA databases, operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the NASA; SIMBAD, operated at CDS, Strasbourg, France; SZ cluster database (http://szcluster-db.ias.u-psud.fr) and SZ repository operated by IDOC operated by IAS under contract with CNES and CNRS.
