Title An XMM PV survey of the Lockman Hole


DOI 10.5270/esa-s1pl1sx
Author Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS
Description The Lockman Hole provides the deepest X-ray survey done with ROSAT. About 80 X-ray sources have been uniquely optically identified. It is also covered by deep Radio-, ISO-, ASCA- adn Beppo-SAX surveys. With 150 ksec XMM PV observation, small systematics errors in the attitude solution, the platescale, systematic position errors and the point-spread function can all be measured. This will also give the first experimental determination of the XMM opportunity to identify confusion limit. This multi wavelength dataset will also provide a unique opportunity to identify the population of obscured AGNs which is thought to provide the bulk of the energy density in the X-ray background and possibly a significant fraction of the FIR background

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.
