[89.11] iA New Large Deep Submillimeter Survey of Gravitationally Lensing Galaxy Clusters

K.K. Knudsen, P.P. van der Werf, M. Franx (Leiden Observatory)

In this poster we present the results of the Leiden-SCUBA Lens survey. In the survey, twelve clusters of galaxies (z=0.033-0.83) and one blank field were targeted with SCUBA. The total area surveyed is 70 arcmin2, which makes this the largest lensed survey. Some of the fields have been observed to a 1\sigma r.m.s. depth of 1 mJy, before correcting for the gravitational lensing. 60 sources have been detected, nine with flux densities <1 mJy. To this depth we resolve about 60 background light. We discuss the overall source properties including the number counts. The identification of the underlying objects has been done using near IR VLT data and deep optical data. We highlight some of individual sources.
