Simulated ESD profile of the offset isolated MICE sample (blue line), created by using MICE galaxies with randomly offset redshifts (σz/[1 + z] = 0.02) and stellar masses (σM⋆ = 0.12 dex) when selecting the isolated lenses. This is done in order to mimic the effect of the KiDS-bright measurement uncertainties on the isolation criterion. Compared to the ESD profile of the truly isolated MICE sample (orange line) the offset sample has a ∼30% higher signal at large scales due to the contribution of satellites. We therefore take extra care with KiDS-bright results at (light blue shaded region). Nevertheless, the ESD of the offset isolated MICE sample is significantly lower than that of all MICE galaxies (red line), created without any isolation criterion. In addition, we show the radius corresponding to three times the resolution of the MICE simulation (dashed vertical line), which in the case of the isolated MICE sample is . Throughout this work, we only use the MICE results beyond this radius.
