Title XMM Observations of Intermediate-Luminosity BLRGs: Expanding the parameter space


DOI 10.5270/esa-748pc14
Author Dr R. Sambruna
Description From the SDSS radio-loud AGN sample of Best et al. (2005) we extracted a volume-limited ( z<0.1 ) sample of 11 Broad Line Radio Galaxies, with X-ray luminosities in the range 10^41-10^43 erg-s, 3 orders of magnitude lower than classical BLRGs, and matching most Seyferts. The XMM observations of this new sample will allow us to: 1) measure the X-ray continua; 2) test multiwavelength correlations valid for bright BLRGs; and 3) constrain the optical-to-X-ray SEDs. We will constrain the nature of the accretion flow and relative importance of the jet in these sources,and compare to luminous radio-loud and radio-quiet AGNs to uncover the fundamental parameters that determine the properties of radio-loud AGN.

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.
