Description ASCA and BeppoSAX obs. of ultracompact (Porb<1hr) LMXBs revealed 2 possible spectral differences compared to other systems.These are (1)the presence of a discrete feature near 0.7keV (attributed to local overabundance of Ne), and (2)the parameter values when fit with a disk-blackbody and Comptonized continuum.Chandra and XMM observations complicated the picture, confirming a Ne overabundance only in few ultracompact sources, suggesting a possible variability. We wish to test2possible explanations for this variability, and to clarify the emerging picture of a spectral signature for the ultracompact systems using XMM.We propose here to observeX1832-330,the only persistent ultracompact LMXRB in a globular cluster still not investigated with high resolution spectroscopy.

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.
