Description We propose to study within a well selected sample of compact starbursts the relation between the X-ray luminosity and the star formation rate (SFR). Comparing the hard X-ray data to optical emission line, FIR and radio data - all indicators of the current SFR - we intend to confirm and calibrate the apparent empirical relation between X-ray luminosity and SFR. Our sample of HII galaxies is ideal for this task: there is excellent supporting data for independent measures of the SFR and, importantly, the hard X-ray emission of these low mass, high SFR systems will be dominated by SFR-tracing High Mass X-ray Binaries. The applications of hard X-rays as a largely absorption independent SFR tracer justify further analysis with high quality data such as that proposed here.

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.
