Title EPIC Mode and Pile-up dependence - PKS0558-504


DOI 10.5270/esa-wnd3vzw
Author Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS
Description CAL- The effect of changing count rates on the spectral response is measured by observing QAGN with similar spectral slope but with a range of fluxes. For each of three EPIC exposures an overhead of 2.7ksec has been defined, and the other instruments adjusted to match.

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.
