Description We propose a deep survey of part of the galactic plane with XMM. The main goals of this survery are twofold. (1) To better characterize the spectrum and galactic latitude dependence of the galactic ridge emission and (2) to search for faint absorbed pulsars which are being detected at close to the limiting sensitivity of current instrumentation. The proposed XMM observations will allow the search for these objects to be conducted a factor virgul10 fainter than previous surveys.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
