|Title||X-ray Emission of Seyfert 2 Galaxies: Contribution of Star-Forming Processes|
|Author||Dr Elena Jimenez-Bailon|
|Description||We propose to study the SB-AGN connection in a representative sample of Seyfert 2 galaxies in which the stellar population have been analysed using state-of-the-art population synthesis models in the optical-UV. By extending the results of the optical modeling to X-rays, we can infer the amount of energy in the X band produced by the SB and compare it with the energy from the central engine. Interestingly, this will allow us to elucidate the nature of the soft X-ray emission in Seyfert 2s, which is still largely unknown. The lack of well studied samples of Seyfert 2s which explore the complementary information provided by optical-UV and X-ray observations in a consistent and well defined manner justifies further analysis using high quality data such as those 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.
