Stellar Populations of Brightest Cluster Galaxies and Intracluster Light

  • Louise O. V. Edwards (a1) and Isabella L. Trierweiller (a1)

Abstract

We present 3 representative cases from a sample of 16 local Brightest Cluster Galaxies observed using integral field spectroscopy. The observations extend to nearby neighbours and into the Intracluster Light (ICL). Population synthesis modeling shows that the ICL is younger and more metal poor compared to the BCG core and outskirts. This is consistent with a scenario in which the ICL grows by cluster processes, and alongside the growth of the BCG.
