Title EPIC Timing calibration - EXO0748-676


DOI 10.5270/esa-p6rkrh9
Author Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS
Description CAL- the ephemeris of LMC binary source eclispses is well known. It is used to verify the absolute timing calibration of EPIC. The eclipses occur every 3.5 hrs, so we observe each EPIC mode for 15ks

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.
