|Title||SPECTRAL AND TIMING ANALYSIS OF THE X-RAY PULSARS B1951+32, J1825-0935, B2334+61|

|Description||We propose to perform high resolution spectroscopy and timing of the pulsars PSR B1951+32, PSR J1825-0935, PSR B2334+61, using XMM-Newton. The targets have characteristic ages from 4E4 to 2.3E5 yr and are within 2.5 kpc, thus they are excellent candidates for detecting both magnetospheric and thermal flux from the star surface. The first pulsar is a bright and complex X-ray source, still poorly studied, for which XMM-Newton can provide excellent spectral, timing and imaging information. The others have only been barely detected in the past, in particular one is a newly discovered X-ray pulsar that we found with a virgul5 ks XMM-Newton snapshot. Deeper XMM-Newton observations will assess the thermal-non-thermal nature of the X-ray flux, making firmer constraints on the neutron star cooling models.|

|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.
