Description We propose to make short snapshot observations of 13 AGNs from the RXTE Slew Survey to obtain complete spectroscopic information of all the non-blazer AGNs in the sample. The main purpose is to use the complete set of AGNs for the inclusion of our continuing improvements of the X-ray luminosity function, intrinsic absorption function and their evolution. The RXTE Slew survey is currently the most extensive hard X-ray selected AGN catalog at the wide-bright end with a well-defined flux limit-area relation. Out of the 77 non-blazer AGNs, 63 has already been observed with XMM-ASCA-SAX. We intend to obtain the high qualityspectra of the remaining 13 with XMM-Newton.

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.
