|Title||X-ray properties of the micro-Jy radio population|
|Author||Dr Antonis Georgakakis|
|Description||This proposal aims to study the X-ray properties of the micro-Jy radio population and in particular explore the nature of the class of narrow emission-line galaxies (NELGs) independently detected in deep radio and X-ray surveys. We propose to perform deep X-ray imaging of the central 30. diameter area of a unique ultra-deep (50 micro-Jy) and homogeneous radio survey, with available photometric and spectroscopic data. The existing observations combined with the proposed deep X-ray pointing will provide a unparalleled multi-wavelength dataset that will be used to (i) explore the association between X-ray and radio selected NELGs, (ii) study the nature of the energizing source that dominates their activity and (iii) constrain|

|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.
