Description We propose to study the X-ray properties of a complete sample of Seyfert 1 galaxies which their optical polarized spectra are similar to those of Seyfert 2 galaxies. The optical properties of these objects can be explained if they are observed at an inclination comparable with the torus opening angle. A systematic analysis in the X-ray band of these objects would reveal the imprint of both the atmosphere of the torus and the features of the nearly ubiquitous warm absorbers observed in Seyfert 1 galaxies. The study will produce new insights to our knowledge on the accretion flow geometry in AGNs.

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.
