Description The ultradeep XMM exposure in the Chandra Deep Field South will provide the most sensitive survey of the hard X-ray sky reaching the confusion limit in the 5-10 keV band and thus targeting a yet unexplored discovery space. The XMM high energy throughput will allow us to study with unprecedented detail the spectral properties of a large sample (~ 100) of heavily obscured and Compton Thick AGN at the redshift peak of their activity (z~1-2). Thanks to the excellent multiwavelength coverage we will assess the role of accreting SMBH in the context of galaxy evolution. The proposed program (approved for about half of the total request in AO7) will create an XMM legacy and a pathfinder for future missions (i.e. IXO)

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.
