Title MCG-02-14-009: probing the physical properties of the strongest relativistic FeK


DOI 10.5270/esa-p51yjid
Author Dr Delphine Porquet
Description MCG-02-14-009 appears to have the strongest relativistic FeK line among all the Seyfert 1s: a short 5ks XMM observation found the line to have an EW~530-770eV, i.e. two times larger than for MCG-6-30-15. We propose a net 100 ks XMM observation follow-up of this AGN, providing a unique opportunity to gain insight into the physical properties of the disk in the region of strong gravity. The main goals of this proposal are: i) accurately measure the broad FeK line profile, thereby determining the geometry of the X-ray emitting region, accretion disk and the black hole spin; ii) determine the origin of the soft excess and whether it is due to emission from a photo-ionized disc or a warm absorber; and iii) characterize the AGN variability and determine whether the iron line responds to continuum changes.

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.
