Title XMM-Newton observations of a sample of INTEGRAL selected AGNs


DOI 10.5270/esa-if20nfs
Author Dr Loredana Bassani
Description We propose to observe a small sample of 7 new IBIS-ISGRI sources for a total exposure of 105 ks. Five of them have been identified with nearby type 1 AGNs through optical spectroscopy, while the other two objects are very likely extra-galactic sources as suggested by their multi-wavelength properties. These bright sources have no X-ray spectroscopic information below 10 keV. XMM-Newton observations will allow us to cover the missing information in the 0.1-10 keV energy band and to characterize the broad band spectra of these objects. Moreover, since these sources are the first gamma-ray selected AGN, it is worth looking for any peculiarities with respect to other X-ray emitting active galaxies.

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.
