Description We propose to re-observe with XMM-EPIC the COSMOS fields 20 and 23, for 32 ks each, in order to improve the homogeneity of the XMM-COSMOS survey. We will therefore improve the measurement of the X--ray source angular correlation function on scales up to several tens of arcminutes and its energy dependence (soft vs. hard). It will also be possible to detect low mass structures not detectable through weak lensing and to improve of characterization of the massive structure in the southern region of the field.

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.
