The Frontier Fields will also enable high-resolution cluster mass maps

Mass resolution ~ average SL image separation

Highest resolution (~25 kpc) cluster mass map to date

Clash at the frontier fields

The Frontier Fields will also enable high-resolution cluster mass maps

  • subhalo mass function

  • quantify degree to which light traces mass

  • mass-to-light ratios; evidence for tidal stripping

  • inform “abundance matching” models

  • strong lensing tomography? (multiple lens planes)

Highest resolution (~25 kpc) cluster mass map to date

The next frontiers of gravitational lensing focus on cluster strong lensing

The Next Frontiers of Gravitational Lensingfocus on cluster strong lensing

  • High-redshift galaxies

    • magnification uncertainties

  • Calibrating mass observables + 3-D analysis

    • lensing, X-ray, SZ, dynamics

  • High-resolution dark matter maps

  • Cosmological constraints
