Title A search for CVs in a deep ROSAT LMC field with three X-ray binaries TS_13

Description GT-The LMC has been subject of extensive imaging observations with ROSAT. The analysis of more than 40 PSPC observations in a region north of LMC X-4 has led to the discovery of two new high mass X-ray binaries (HMXBs) and pulsations from EXO 053109-6609.2. One aim of our XMM proposal is to further investigate the spectral and temporal properties of these three HMXBs. A detection limit of about 10^33 erg-s will allow to search for other X-ray binaries and cataclysmic variables in the expected large sample of point sources in the field of view (more than 20 were found in ROSAT data). A complete census of the X-ray sources in the proposed area is crucial for understanding the types of sources and for composition studies of the X-ray source population of the LMC as a whole.

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.
