|Title||The X-ray luminosty - rotation measure relation in clusters of galaxies|
|Author||Dr Sabine Schindler|
|Description||A powerful tool to learn about the connection of magnetic field and intra-cluster gas density and temperature is the relation between the X-ray luminosity and the Faraday rotation measure. We propose to perform a combined X-ray-radio analyis of the cluster Abell 514 to determine this relation with high accuracy and measure its temperature dependence. The determination of the dynamical state of this merger clusters with an extremely disturbed X-ray morphology by means of a temperature map is the second major goal of this observation. The third goal is the investigation of the connection of magnetic field and the dynamical state of clusters.|

|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.
