Description As the final element of QUEST, a comprehensive multiwavelength program on local massive gas-rich mergers (ULIRGs & QSOs), we propose to obtain EPIC imaging data on the remaining 10 of 25 PG QSOs in the QUEST sample that have not been observed by XMM or Chandra. The main goal of the program is to determine the evolution of the energy source and the feeding-growth rate of BHs along the merger sequence (from mergers to ULIRGs to QSOs) as well as to find if there is a fundamental link between ULIRGs, IR-excess QSOs, and optical QSOs. These observations will supplement data already obtained with HST, SST, VLT, and IRAM. The X-ray data will become part of graduate student S. Teng.s Ph.D. thesis.

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.
