[10.11] Diffuse Radio Emission and Large Scale Structure

L. Rudnick, K.M. Delain (University of Minnesota), S. Rawlings, K. Brand, K. Blundell (University of Oxford)

We present results from a deep, low resolution VLA observation of the TONS 6o by 6o field at 90cm, and a possible detection of large scale structure in diffuse radio emission. Other studies have identified >100 Mpc superstructures in this field. We present the results of pushing into the radio confusion limit by subtracting small sources detected at higher resolution. We have removed ~95% of the flux from the small sources using this method. We discuss the prospects of detecting large scale structure through the radio emission expected to be generated by structure formation shocks.

Partial support has been provided by NSF Grant AST-0307600 to the University of Minnesota.
