Title The broad Fe line and complex X-ray spectrum of the Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 290

Author Dr Giovanni Miniutti
Description We propose to observe the Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 290 for the first time with XMM-Newton for a total exposure of 50 ks. Our main goals are: 1) study the details of the broad Fe line profile detected by ASCA, measure its parameters inferring limits on the black hole spin, and study its short-timescale variability and response to the continuum; 2) characterise at both CCD and RGS resolution the complex soft X-ray spectrum where ASCA detected clear signatures of warm absorber and possible emission lines; 3) use the expected X-ray variability to unveil the main spectral components and their contribution to the (already observed) spectral variability.

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.
