|Title||UNVEILING X-RAY TEMPORAL AND SPECTRAL PROPERTIES OF NEW INTERMEDIATE POLARS|
|Author||Dr DOMITILLA DE MARTINO|
|Description||We propose to observe the new Magnetic Cataclysmic Variables UU Col, RXJ1039-0507 and RXJ0944+0357 to assess their Intermediate Polar (IP) nature. The large throughput of XMM allows detailed temporal and spectral studies of IPs to fluxes at which previous satellites could only provide basic information. The proposed systems encompass a wide range of soft to hard X-ray flux ratios and degrees of asynchronism, thus representing a challenge to our understanding of accretion processes in presence of magnetic fields and of the evolution of magnetic Cataclysmic Variables.|

|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.
