Title: Photometric Redshifts of Massive Sunyaev-Zeldovich Clusters

Abstract: We propose to obtain photometric redshifts for a sample of 30 high z galaxy clusters discovered by a recent blind Sunyaev-Zeldovich survey. We intend to image these clusters in the R and I band with the CTIO 4m telescope equipped with Mosaic and use the Cluster-Red-Sequence method to estimate their redshifts.
