Title Search for Cyclotron Line Features in the Spectra of Pulsating X-ray Binaries


DOI 10.5270/esa-6ak5vbe
Author Dr Martin Turner
Description GT-A sample of X-ray binaries containing neutron stars with a supposed intermediate magnetic field strength (10**10 to 10**12 Gauss) is to be observed. The X-ray spectra will be analysed with the particular aim to search for cyclotron absorption lines in the energy range accessible to XMM. It is to be noted that observation 1 (4U 0115+63) will have to be a target of opportunity (TOO) observation, with a trigger to come from CGRO-BATSE and-or RXTE-ASM.

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.
