[54.03] Ultraviolet and X-ray imaging of Coma Cluster galaxies with XMM

T. P. Sasseen (UC Santa Barbara), J.P.D. Mittaz (Mullard Space Science Laboratory), Optical Monitor Team

We present images of the Coma Cluster galaxies in three vacuum UV filter bandpasses, taken with the Optical Monitor on XMM. We explore the galaxy UV luminosity function and galaxy colors using these filters and compare with previous work on the Coma cluster. We also investigate correlations between the UV and X-ray properties of Coma cluster galaxies and their implications for star formation and galaxy evolution.
