Title X-ray emission of a representative sample of local Luminous Infrared Galaxies


DOI 10.5270/esa-slo0v0l
Author Dr Almudena Alonso-Herrero
Description We propose to observe with XMM-Newton 8 Luminous Infrared Galaxies (LIRGs, L_IR=10^11-10^12L_sun) and analyze existing X-ray data for another 7 LIRGs. Previous X-ray studies of local LIRGs are biased towards the most IR-luminous objects as well as those systems hosting a bright AGN. These 15 local LIRGs are representative of the LIRG class in terms of IR luminosity and nuclear activity. The proposed XMM observations together with existing multi-wavelength (UV to IR) data will allow to characterize the star formation history of these galaxies and relate it to their X-ray emission. A comprehensive multi-wavelength understanding of the extreme processes (star formation and AGN) taking place in local LIRGs is needed to improve the linkage of X-ray, UV and IR observations of deep cosmological fields.

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.
