Title Fe K line emission of a center-filled SNR 3C397

Author Dr Ken.ichi Torii
Description We propose to perform a 33 ks observation of the young center-filled supernova remnant (SNR) 3C397 using XMM. Observation goals are as follows: 1. Spatial mapping of Si, S and Fe lines and reveal their stratification. 2. Determine progenitor type by measuring metal abundances. 3. Study whether the thermal emission comes from the center-filled or the shell-like structure.

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.
