Abstract: We present a multi-wavelength analysis of 11 Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect (SZE)-selected galaxy clusters (10 with new data) from the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) southern survey. We have obtained new imaging from the Large APEX Bolometer Camera (345 GHz; LABOCA) on the Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment (APEX) telescope, the Australia Telescope Compact Array (2.1 GHz; ATCA), and the Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (250, 350, and 500 mu m; SPIRE) on the Herschel Space Observatory. (24)Spatially resolved 345 GHz SZE increments with integrated signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) > 5 are found in six clusters. We compute 2.1 GHz number counts as a function of cluster-centric radius and find significant enhancements in the counts of bright sources at projected radii theta < theta(2500c). By extrapolating in frequency, we predict that the combined signals from 2.1 GHz-selected radio sources and 345 GHz-selected submillimeter galaxies (SMGs) contaminate the 148 GHz SZE decrement signal by similar to 5% and the 345 GHz SZE increment by similar to 18%. After removing radio source and SMG emission from the SZE signals, we use ACT, LABOCA, and (in some cases) new Herschel SPIRE imaging to place constraints on the clusters’ peculiar velocities. The sample’s average peculiar velocity relative to the cosmic microwave background is < v(p)> = 153 +/- 383 km s(-1).
