Title EPIC Filter Transmission 0.3-0.5 keV band - CAL83


DOI 10.5270/esa-g6j4ztb
Author Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS
Description CAL- The supersoft source CAL83 will produce counts in a very limited bandpass .We use these data to compare response of the EPIC filters. The 3 filters are observed for 10ks each, and the overhead of 4ks per filter is compared to those of RGS and OM.

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.
