Title A Co-ordinated X-ray-Optical Medium Deep Survey


DOI 10.5270/esa-66gqtnd
Author Dr Martin Turner
Description GT-We propose to perform a medium deep survey with EPIC of a single contiguous area coordinated with approved deep photometric (MEGACAM) and spectroscopic (VIRMOS) surveys. Guaranteed time observations (400 ksec) will cover an area of 2 sq. deg. (16x20 + 2x40 ksec pointings). This will allow to identify galaxy clusters-groups up to z~1-2 and AGNs much farther away. GT observations will be focused on AGN evolution and search for distant clusters; they will be completed by an Open Time proposal to cover a surrounding area of 8x8 sq. deg.(10 ksec pointings), dedicated to Large Scale Structure investigations.This GT survey is a collaboration between members of the EPIC, OM and SSC consortia.

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.
