Description We propose a program searching for obscured AGN in nearby bright infrared galaxies reminiscent of NGC4945, a classical example of FIR galaxies which only hard X-ray technique can probe the obscured nuclei. We selected 11 molecular-rich, intermediate luminosity galaxies from the IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample. They are strong starburst galaxies and potentially harbour active nuclei which optical technique could not be sensitive to. X-ray detection of AGN in this sample would have significant implications for the X-ray background, far-IR background and formation of black holes in the universe.

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.
