We report a new measurement of the cosmological Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) diminution of FORMULA at 10.55 GHz with the Effelsberg 100-m radio telescope towards the A 2218 cluster of galaxies. We also report and analyse the X-ray observations of the A 2218 cluster of galaxies with the ROSAT satellite. The position and the strength of the measured SZ diminution are in excellent agreement with the expectations calculated from the X-ray analysis.

Key words: cluster of galaxies: A 2218 - plasmas - radiative transfer - cosmology: diffuse radiation
