Description We request a 40-ks XMM pulse-phase spectroscopic observation of the remarkable, possibly ultra-magnetized X-ray pulsar, 1E 1841-045. The pulsar is associated with the young (~2,000 yr-old) SNR Kes 73. Its slow, 12-s rotation is unprecedented for its youth, raising the intriguing possibility that the pulsar possesses an enormous surface magnetic field of nearly B ~1015 G, a 1000X stronger than for a typical radio pulsar. The proposed observation will yield an unprecedented spectral measurement - providing a phased stellar spectrum explore the nature of the emissions. These observations will help advance our understanding of young neutrons stars, in particular the magnetar phenomena.

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.
