We have identified a population of passive spiral galaxies from photometry and integral field spectroscopy. We selected z < 0.035 spiral galaxies that have WISE colours consistent with little mid-infrared emission from warm dust. Matched aperture pho... Read More

The rarity of star formation in brightest cluster galaxies as measured by WISE (2014)
Journal Article
Fraser-McKelvie, A., Pimbblet, K. A., & Brown, M. J. I. (2014). The rarity of star formation in brightest cluster galaxies as measured by WISE. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters, 444(1), (L63-L67). doi:10.1093/mnrasl/slu117. ISSN 1745-3933

We present the mid-infrared star formation rates of 245 X-ray selected, nearby (z < 0.1) brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs). A homogeneous and volume limited sample of BCGs was created by X-ray selecting clusters with Lx > 1 × 1044 erg s⁻ ¹. The Wi... Read More
