Description We propose XMM observations of 4U1700-37, the compact companion to the extreme Of supergiant HD153919, at four different orbital phases. The unique capabilities of XMM would allow us to: (i) search for the origin of the observed, but unexpected, soft component in the X-ray spectrum; (ii) identify the input spectrum of the Raman-scattered emission lines; (iii) study the nature of the compact X-ray source; (iv) look for the expected, but so far undetected X-ray pulsations; (v) investigate the accretion flow and detailed X-ray flaring behaviour. This high-mass X-ray binary is unique in its class and provides the opportunity to address many unsolved issues that can only be studied in these type of systems.

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.
